Now a major motion picture from Dream Works Pictures starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks and directed by Steven Spielberg, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is the uproarious bestselling true story of one of the world`s most sought-after con men. Frank Abagnale, alias Frank Williams, Robert Conrad, Frank Adams, and Robert Monjo, was one of the most daring con men, forgers, impostors, and escape artists in history. During his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot`s uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks-all before he was twenty-one. A hilarious, stranger-than-fiction account of his sumptuous life on the lam, international escapades, and ingenious escapes, Catch Me If You Can is a captivating tale of deceit. "Irresistible! . . . touches that current of larceny that lies within all of us." -Houston Chronicle "A book that captivates from first page to last" -West Coast Review of Books "Zingingly told. . . richly detailed and winning as the devil." -Kirkus Reviews
