`Beautifully told by David Grann, one of the best true-crime writers around... Nuanced and gripping' Evening Standard Now a major film starring Robert Redford, Sissy Spacek and Casey Affleck, The Old Man and the Gun is joined by two other riveting true-crime tales by the author of the bestselling Killers of the Flower Moon The Old Man and the Gun is the incredible story of a bank robber and prison escape artist who modelled himself after figures like Pretty Boy Floyd and who, even in his seventies, refuses to retire. True Crime follows the twisting investigation of a Polish detective who suspects that a novelist planted clues in his fiction to an actual murder. And The Chameleon recounts how a French imposter assumes the identity of a missing boy from Texas and infiltrates the boy's family, only to soon wonder whether he is the one being conned. In this mesmerizing collection, David Grann shows why he has been called a `worthy heir to Truman Capote' and `simply the best narrative non-fiction writer working today', as he takes the reader on a journey through some of the most intriguing and gripping real-life tales from around the world. Praise for Killers of the Flower Moon `An extraordinary story with extraordinary pace and atmosphere' Sunday Times `A marvel of detective-like research and narrative verve' Financial Times `A riveting true story of greed, serial murder and racial injustice' Jon Krakauer `A fiercely entertaining mystery story and a wrenching exploration of evil' Kate Atkinson `A fascinating account of a tragic and forgotten chapter in the history of the American West' John Grisham And for The Lost City of Z (shortlisted for the 2009 Samuel Johnson Prize) `Absorbing... a wonderful story of a lost age of heroic exploration' Sunday Times `Marvellous... engrossing' Daily Telegraph `At once a biography, a detective story and wonderfully vivid piece of travel writing... suspenseful... rollicking... fascinating' New York Times
