In the early 1970s, Glazer, then a college freshman, was looking to score a little grass. Instead, he got ripped off, and to get revenge, he concocted an elaborate sting that would seem too movielike to be true if it hadn’t really happened. Posing as cops, he and a friend, the charismatic and gung-ho Don Woodbeck, set up a major buy and a fake arrest and then made off with the cash. So began their career as scam artists; eventually they became so successful (and profitable) that they were hired by the Kansas City attorney general’s office to go undercover and bring down some really bad dudes. This is a high-flying, adrenaline-filled story with the feel of the movie The Sting, although it should be noted that it doesn’t end quite so happily: Glazer and Woodbeck’s “one last con” backfired tragically. Fans of memoirs set in the world of cons and scams—the books of Frank W. Abagnale, for example—will completely enjoy this one. --David Pitt

so over the top I think there is maybe 30% truth to this thing. This guy is a conman and greatly oversells his reality in all of his writing (blog as well) it's just not truePublished on October 11, 2011 by Bart Ewing
