"Fraud on the Court" is an eye-opening book. Mike Chalek gives hope to those seeking the identities of their biological parents. He has brought awareness of human trafficking and is an inspiration to those adoptees who have suffered abuse from their adoptive parents in that they can overcome their intolerable past and make a future for themselves.

Story of Mike's quest grabbed my interest and I could not put it down until I knew the conclusion to the matter. Gave me new insight into the closed adoption controversy.

I really enjoyed reading this book i thought it expresssed one mans struggles and strengths very well. It puts a great deal of understanding of how our laws and system works when it came to adoption and what so many people like mike went through then and are still going through today. Mikes courage and the fight to never give up is very inspirational and amazing. Great read. I highly recommend this book.
