Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1980

Truth, in Frank Abagnale’s autobiography, is more entertaining than fiction. Abagnale, one of the world’s most brilliant con men and impostors, re-creates the events that had police in the U.S. and twenty-six countries searching for him--all before his twenty-first birthday. From his impersonations of an airline pilot, pediatrician, professor, assistant attorney general, and federal agent, through his seemingly limitless check swindles, this book tells it all in superb detail. Barrett Whitener’s flawless reading uses all the right emotions and inflections to bring this international criminal to life. Most impressive is how Whitener leaves listeners rooting for Abagnale, whether he is avoiding arrest or escaping from an airplane or prison. D.J.S.
