Scam focuses on one family of Irish Traveler con artists and, in the process, explores and details the full range of the ethic clans, uncovering America's most secret crime families in a true store of swindles, betrayal and murder. The book even provides intimate details about the Travelers' secret lifestyles while it outlines their wide range of scams against Americans. Movie rights to the book were sold to Disney Studios, but no movie has yet been produced.
