Summary
Think You Know Who Your Friends Are? Think again... From Mata Hari to D. B. Cooper, history is littered with people pretending to be someone else. Some go undetected for years, cultivating their false identities so skillfully, even their spouses don't know. Other frauds go up in flames after one misstep. The Ultimate Book of Impostors presents the astonishing true stories behind over one hundred of the craziest and funniest phonies in history, including: -A fake French government official who managed to sell the Eiffel Tower-twice -One of the Wild West's toughest and more admired "male" stagecoach drivers, who was actually a woman! -An Israeli Mossad team that stole the identities of real British and Australian citizens to trap an unsuspecting target for assassination Packed with fun facts and outrageous accounts of fake pilots, phony princesses, imitation Indians, and serial sham artists, this irresistible book exposes the truth behind the world's wildest fraud-and why they did it-and reveals that even those we think we know best may not be exactly who they seem
