Now a major motion picture starring Robert Redford and Sissy Spacek, from the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Killers of the Flower Moon, The Old Man and the Gun is here joined by two other riveting true crime tales. "The Old Man and the Gun," is the story of a man who idolized the likes of Pretty Boy Floyd and, as a result, fashions himself into a notorious bank robber and escape artist. "The Chameleon" is the tale a French con artist gets in over his head when he impersonates a missing Texas teenager and raises the suspicions of a local private investigator. "True Crime" follows a riveting investigation in which a Polish cold-case detective makes an unlikely connection between a philosopher's novel and the murder case he's trying to crack. Grann takes the reader on a journey through some of the strangest and most thrilling real life stories of felonious behavior from around the world.

Career criminal Forrest Tucker, a wanted man for two years since his daring escape from San Quentin State Prison in 1979, has just robbed another bank. While evading police, the 74-year-old charmer comes across a woman on the side of the road with car trouble and stops to give the appearance of assisting. The ploy works as moments later, police drive by without noticing him. The woman, Jewel, who is grateful for his help, buys Tucker lunch at a diner. Despite introducing himself with a fake name, Tucker becomes drawn to Jewel to the point of revealing that he is a bank robber. The two later spend time together on Jewel's farm where Tucker becomes enamored with her and her life. Tucker makes a plan to pay off the rest of Jewel's mortgage as a surprise but becomes frustrated after the bank tells him that this would require Jewel's signature on some documents, negating any surprise.Tucker goes on to conduct a string of heists, often without having to draw his gun from under his coat. Dallas Police Detective John Hunt compiles police sketches from witnesses who describe Tucker as charming and gentlemanly. He then displays the sketches on the evening news, asking anyone with information to come forward. Shortly afterwards, Hunt's investigation is taken over by the FBI.A woman named Dorothy comes forward stating that she is Tucker's daughter. Although he is no longer on the case, Hunt agrees to meet with her. Dorothy says that she was born while Tucker was in prison making Tucker unaware of her or his grandchild. Hunt is led to Tucker's former lawyer who says that Tucker has never pulled the trigger of his gun. According to his lawyer, police reports of Tucker firing during a standoff are false as it was simply his car's engine backfiring. Later, during a night out with Jewel, Tucker happens to recognize Detective Hunt who is with his wife Maureen. Tucker tries to boost Hunt's confidence but becomes unnerved when Hunt calls him by his real name, "Forrest", indicating that the recognition is mutual.
