Description
Did a hustler from the Bronx nearly bring down the U.S. government? In an "absorbing and hilarious" book that "reads like good fiction" (Washington Post), two-time Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Robert Greene uncovers the scandalous story that inspired the film American Hustle. From working on the streets of New York City to selling bogus businesses and sham investments around the world, Mel Weinberg netted millions of dollars in his audacious schemes. In the late 1970s he was recruited by the FBI to combat art thieves and counterfeiters, but Weinberg's sting operation—Abscam—soon snared even bigger targets, including eight corrupt congressmen and senators. Greene presents not only a thrilling account of the rise of the FBI's international con mastermind, but a vivid dissection of the underbelly of the American Dream.
