Author Pope Brock tells the story of John R. Brinkley, a charismatic and cunning quack who rose to fame in the early 1900s by promising miracle cures for a range of ailments.

But it is also the story of Morris Fishbein, a young doctor who dedicated his life to exposing Brinkley's fraud and bringing him to justice. Fishbein's pursuit of Brinkley is a thrilling tale of cat-and-mouse, as he uses every tool at his disposal to bring down the charlatan and protect the public from his dangerous schemes. "Charlatan" is a meticulously researched and beautifully written book that offers a fascinating glimpse into a bygone era of American history.
