Brilliant ‒ a terrific read. Robin Quinn's eye for a story and readiness to dig deep have paid off with a gasp-inducing account of the career of an outrageous chancer, who went from being Europe's most envied man to most-wanted criminal. Rien ne va plus!Michael Aspel O.B.ETelevision host
You couldn’t really make up this story. It’s actual real life stuff that’s both unbelievable, extraordinary and true. The best book I’ve read all year, the level of research that’s gone into this excellent book by Robin Quinn is staggering. A thoroughly entertaining, interesting read that’s highly recommended.Nigel JonesEditor, Devonshire Magazine
I can't rate this book highly enough. Not what I expected, very quick moving and so full of wonderful details. You get close to the exceptional Charles Wells and the last chapters are revealing as so much is explained. I am staggered at the sheer amount of research that must have gone into this wonderful story.John AdaGoodreads Review
