Anna Delvey, a self-proclaimed German heiress, was generous, worldly and ambitious. Then she asked her new friend Williams to join her on an all-expenses-paid trip to Marrakech at the five-star La Mamounia hotel. Anna's credit cards mysteriously stopped working, and Anna asked Williams to begin fronting costs-- for flights, meals and shopping, and, finally, for their $7,500-per-night private villa. Back in Manhattan the repayment never materialized, and Williams learned that Anna had left a trail of deceit-- and was one of the city's most notorious con artists. -- adapted from jacket
