This was probably one of the most entertaining true crime books I have ever read. It is the story of two FBI agents who chased a charming con man for years.
Phil Kitzer was a world-class conman. He headed the Fraternity and swindled and conned anyone he could. Jack Brennan and Jim Wydick were the FBI agents who wanted to take him down. They worked in an FBI that didn’t want to focus its attention on con men. It wanted to focus on anti-communism. But they persisted and eventually took down the Fraternity.
I think the best part of the book was that Brennan and Wydick convinced Phil Kitzer to work for them after they caught him. This book is well-written and gives the reader an interesting look at a complex conspiracy. I highly recommend it.
