The Man in the Rockefeller Suit by Mark Seal

Clark Rockefeller who is also known as Christian Karl Gerhartsreier made the headlines when he kidnapped his own daughter and vanished. After years of trying the case was considered cold, they could not be found and all of the leads ended up as dead ends. When the complete account was finally put together it was discovered that Mr. Gerhartsreier had nearly pulled off the faultless crime, by impersonating numerous people during the commission of said crime. He was only caught when he left his DNA on a water glass. The book covers his marriage and divorce and shows that anyone can become anyone they want if they are sharp enough. Arrested for kidnapping of a minor and assault and battery with an armed weapon and found guilty, he will be released in 2013 It will be interesting to see how this criminally minded foreigner will fit into society as himself rather than living a lie. It is the Criminal Justice in me that makes me want to get in people’s heads.
