    See, the story sounded so interesting but Lamont writes like a pompous Englishman, using needlessly flowery language to describe things It just got too tedious to read and not at all interesting in the way I was expecting He spends way too much time trying to explain why he s saying what he s saying and I didn t even bother with the excessive footnotes I may wikipedia the dude for a brief

    A fascinating and detailed account of the life of a high octane super grifter who came from illegitimate beginnings and effectively scammed his way into high society and the royal courts of Europe Exhaustively researched and thoroughly satisfying.
