A real-life Talented Mr. Ripley, the unbelievable 30-year run of a shape-shifting con man. The story of Clark Rockefeller is a stranger-than-fiction twist on the classic American success story of the self-made man-because Clark Rockefeller was totally made up. The career con man who convincingly passed himself off as Rockefeller was born in a small village in Germany.
From the start, the man New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik called "a hurricane" was a different kind of cop. A former juvenile delinquent, Jerry Speziale was a loose cannon whose antics got him into the crack dens and shooting galleries of New York's meanest streets - and onto an elite DEA narcotics task force charged with taking down South America's powerful Cali drug cartel.
