"Often posing as the scion of a famous family, Christopher Rocancourt- alias Rockefeller- swindled millions from marks around the world: there was the diamond-smuggling scheme in Zaire, the alleged perfume fraud involving Jermaine Jackson, the fleecing of a Beverly Hills boutique owner. Yet somehow he kept slipping through the arms of the law. Bryan Burrough tracks a master of audacity from Los Angeles, where Rocancourt left a mysterious corpse in his wake, to the Hamptons, where he ran afoul of a genuine heir, to France, where his poignant masquerade began."
