Summary "She fell in love with him, they married and then she found out who he was: a brilliant, sociopathic fraud. She was a capable and confident young woman, studying broadcast journalism and honing her skills of observation and objectivity. She was also a little unworldly and naive, the product of a small, rural Western Canadian community where doors were never locked and life was simple and direct. On a backpacking trip in the UK, she met the man who would abuse her trust without mercy and make her life hellishly complicated for years to come. This is the true story of how Lee Mackenzie fell in love with and married a man who, unbeknown to her, was an impostor of great skill and outrageous audacity. A man everyone agreed was one of the most intelligent, charming, entertaining people they had ever met. Easy to like, easy to believe. Easy to love. A man who, she was to discover, had been in and out of courts and prisons for years before their meeting. Lee, like so many others before and after, did not see the dark side of Kenner Jones until it was too late. He shattered her emotionally, psychologically and financially. And then she forgave him. And then he did it again. Decades later, he is still at large, having committed crimes around the world. He has been described--by the seasoned immigration officer who helped kick him out of the States--as "the best conman I have ever encountered in my entire career." No one got closer to Kenner Jones than Lee Mackenzie. No one has known him better--or perhaps that should be worse. In a narrative of almost unbearable, mounting menace, Lee Mackenzie tells her story, and finally unmasks Kenner Jones for the first time."-- Provided by publisher
