The Irresistible Con : The Bizarre Life of a Fraudulent Genius Paperback
His names were crazy enough - Baron Hajdu, Carl Rodgers, Mr Carl, Michael Karoly. And his jobs - receptionist, hypnotherapist, businessman, rentier, journalist and sex worker.
But he was always careful to cover his tracks, so no-one suspected a thing when in 1971 a curious new figure appeared on the London academic scene.
Her name was Charlotte Bach, and she was a broad-shouldered mammoth of a woman, with a deep voice and a heavy Central European accent.
She was a former lecturer at the University of Budapest, and had a new theory of sex and evolution which was soon being heralded as one of the greatest intellectual advances of the 20th century.
