About the Book

The story of a father and daughter con team in Edwardian London is told in the book An Amiable Charlatan. The titular characters in this book are once again just as charming as Oppenheim's other rogues. E. Philips Oppenheim has a knack for inventing fascinating and ethically dubious characters. The two main characters in this novel present a traditional British persona, which effectively conceals their true intentions. The two Robin Hood-like characters in this novel attempt to con and pickpocket the haughty and wealthy members of the high society while escaping perfectly and in plain sight. An Amiable Charlatan, written by one of the most prolific adventure novelists of all time, E. Philips Oppenheim highlights his talent for creating attractive characters that readers and listeners will want to root for. Cate Barratt does a good job telling the narrative, and in addition to having a voice that is extremely likable, her performance is brimming with the wit and humor that the characters she plays undoubtedly possess in abundance. For those who enjoy fun, anti-hero stories, An Amiable Charlatan is a lively read and a fantastic listen.

About Author

E. Phillips Oppenheim

E. Phillips Oppenheim was born on October 22, 1866, in Tohhenham, London, England, to Henrietta Susannah Temperley Budd and Edward John Oppenheim, a leather retailer. After leaving school at age 17, he helped his father in his leather business and used to write in his extra time. His first novel, Expiration (1886), and subsequent thrillers piqued the interest of a wealthy New York businessman who eventually bought out the leather business and made Oppenheim a high-paid director.He is more focused on dedicating most of his time to writing. The novels, volumes of short stories, and plays that followed, numbering more than 150, were about humans with modern heroes, fearless spies, and stylish noblemen. The Long Arm of Mannister (1910), The Moving Finger (1911), and The Great Impersonation (1920) are three of his most famous essays.
