Even seasoned reporters have admitted that "Clark Rockefeller" spooks them. For over thirty years, the man born in Germany as Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter has been reinventing himself with ever more elaborate ruses, eventually reemerging in New York City in the early nineties as a counterfeit Rockefeller heir. By then, he was quite possibly a double murderer: In 1985, his San Marino, California landlord and wife disappeared; ten years later, a skeleton, believed to be one of the pair, was dug up in their backyard. In March, "Rockefeller," already serving for another crime, was formally charged with murder. Mark Seal's new book takes us as close into the mind of this strange man as we can ever hope (or wish) to be. The shocking odyssey of a human chameleon.
