Quite a book, I'm not a fan of true crime books but this one was interesting and not gruesome like some murder books can be.
"Reinvention is the immigrant's ultimate desire, and what German immigrant Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter did over more than three decades in America was reinvention on steroids. He became Clark Rockefeller of Boston for 12 years, able to fool the American elite, until the breakup of his marriage and the kidnapping of his own daughter revealed the deception. What makes me sad is that reinvention--of the benign variety--is nearly impossible today, with enhanced technologies for surveillance, and the pervasive reach of intrusive bureaucracy. While Rockefeller/Gerhartsreiter took it to unfortunate extremes, the possibility of constant reinvention is an essential part of the American story."
