Novelist Clifford Irving’s “autobiography” of Howard Hughes was the literary hoax of our time. This no-holds-barred confession by the author was first published in Great Britain in 1977, where it became a bestseller. But no American hardcover house would touch it until now. Why? The answer is implicit in this ultimate caper story of daring, treachery, and corruption. As fast-paced and exciting as any spy novel, The Hoax involves the reader at every devilish turn. Irving describes how the hoax developed, like a Chinese puzzle, from its madcap beginning to the final startling confession—a witty and nail-biting story of international intrigue and beautiful women, of powerful corporate executives and jet-set rogues, of cover-ups and headlines.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Deserves to sell a million, because the fact is more weird than any fiction and the story is carried like a time bomb through the pages. Nothing can detract from Irving’s superb skill as a writer.” London Express
“Narrator Joe Barrett is remarkably convincing as the determined author…as hair-raising, breathlessly paced, and suspenseful as any spy novel.” AudioFile
“Barrett’s voice, tinged with cynicism, world-weariness, and a complete lack of guilt about the lying and deceit he is describing, captures Irving perfectly.” Kliatt
“A story which reads like the best thriller fiction and which contains the seeds of a dozen movie scripts. Mysterious meetings, false passports, a beautiful Danish baroness, Swiss bank accounts…Alfred Hitchcock would handle the whole thing perfectly.” Tatler
