Blood Will Out (Walter Kirn)

Article by keaton

Simultaneously a page-turning true crime narrative and a powerful rumination on the nature of identity, truth and belief, Blood Will Out recounts Kirn’s longtime friendship with eccentric billionaire Clark Rockefeller. The only problem is...there is no such person! Years later, the man is unmasked as a serial imposter, conman and murderer who has been at this game for decades. You will be astounded by the audacity of the sociopath known as Clark, but also by the willingness of dozens of smart people to wholeheartedly believe his ruse. In the tradition of In Cold Blood, it’s part memoir, part thriller, part courtroom drama. A riveting and unsettling read that will leave you questioning just how much you can trust anyone.
