Ms. Pollock talked about her book, The Pretender: How Martin Frankel Fooled the Financial World and Led the Feds on One of the Most Publicized Manhunts in History, published by Wall Street Journal. Mr. Frankel bought a chain of insurance companies in the 1990s by pretending to be a successful investor. Then he allegedly spent the assets of the companies rather than investing them.
