RARA-AVIS: Library of Larceny Redux

From: Jeff Vorzimmer ( jvorzimmer@austin.rr.com)

I just finished another volume in the Library of Larceny series, written by J.R. "Yellow Kid" Weil called Con Man about his exploits of 50 years as America's most notorious Con Man. It was a great read, probably the equal of, or maybe even superior to Catch Me if You Can or The Big Con. I hope Luc Sante is allowed to continue with the series. It's been about a year since the last volume came out and haven't heard of any new ones on the horizon.

Has anyone else read any of these or have any suggestions for more reading about real-life con artists other than the three books I mentioned?
