A hundred years ago Th?r?se Humbert was one of the most powerful women in France; her salon was the center of Parisian life, and her wealth--as the assumed illegitimate daughter of an American billionaire--was fabled. She lived life on a grand scale and was the toast of Paris. But Th?r?se was not who she claimed to be. Her lifestyle, her history, and, most important, her fortune--all were an elaborate hoax.
