Son of a Grifter : The Twisted Tale of Sante and Kenny Kimes, the Most Notorious Con Artists in America:
About this item
In 1988 a troubled young man and his flamboyant mother were arrested for murdering a wealthy widow in her New York City mansion. Suddenly, America was transfixed by a pair of real-life film noir characters. The media couldn't get enough of the twisted relationship between Sante Kimes and her twenty-three-year-old son Kenny. But the most chilling story of all was never told-until now. Kent Walker, Sante's elder son, reveals how he survived forty years of "the Dragon Lady's" very special brand of motherly love and still managed to get away. As a child Kent watched his mother destroy his hardworking father, Ed Walker, and then-with Kent's painful collusion-snare what Sante called "my millionaire." When she married seemingly respectable real-estate developer Ken Kimes, it was a match made in hell. For the next two decades Kent's mother and stepfather indulged in a globetrotting ****** of criminal behavior, laying waste to each other and anyone who got in the way. When Kent's half-brother, Kenny, was born, Kent was twelve years old-old enough to know that he was his younger sibling's only protector.
