"[A] remarkable piece of storytelling . . .[filled with] brilliant portraits. . . . It's great fun to read."
-- Boston Globe on The Mark Inside

"Engrossing. . . . [Reading] gets to the center of both Norfleet's story and the mass appeal of the con artist as a figure in American culture." -- Paris Review on The Mark Inside

"An engaging book for anybody who wants to better understand misconduct in the realm of finance--and the consequences of such misconduct for everybody involved." -- USA Today on The Mark Inside

"An entertaining read, grounded in detailed historical analysis. . . . A fascinating story of crime and punishment." -- New York Journal of Books on The Mark Inside

"This work, which puts deception in a sociological context from the settlement of the colonies on, is riveting, exciting, and eye-opening. . . . Thoroughly researched and engagingly presented."
-- Booklist (starred review) on The Mark Inside

"This account of con artists and obsessive revenge is replete with dramatic twists and turns. . . . [and] vibrant characterizations. . . . This narrative of vigilante justice flows like fiction, as con artistry is illuminated throughout, with resonance in today's world of high-tech con artistry."
-- Publishers Weekly on The Mark Inside
