`Beautifully told by David Grann, one of the best true-crime writers around...

True Crime follows the twisting investigation of a Polish detective who suspects that a novelist planted clues in his fiction to an actual murder.

And The Chameleon recounts how a French imposter assumes the identity of a missing boy from Texas and infiltrates the boy's family, only to soon wonder whether he is the one being conned. In this mesmerizing collection, David Grann shows why he has been called a `worthy heir to Truman Capote' and `simply the best narrative non-fiction writer working today', as he takes the reader on a journey through some of the most intriguing and gripping real-life tales from around the world.

a wonderful story of a lost age of heroic exploration' Sunday Times `Marvellous... engrossing' Daily Telegraph `At once a biography, a detective story and wonderfully vivid piece of travel writing... suspenseful...

rollicking... fascinating' New York Times
