Fascinationg read

Halfway through the book I realized how ironic the title was, as it became more and more obvious that the subject being assessed by the author was a compulsive liar. Finkel's honest story of friendship and entanglement with this character Longo provides as close a look as we're likely to get into the mind of this particular charming, intelligent narcissist capable of unspeakable deeds. Very very good, well worth the credit.

Very well written and narrated!!

I'm a borderline obsessive, audio book consumer; listening up to 3-4 a week. This is one of the better true crime books I've come across! You won't be disappointed.
