Adam Sisman

The Professor & The Parson

Published by: Profile Books

The bizarre story of Robert Peters, conman, fantasist and bigamist, known as the ‘Romeo Rev’. In the course of his pretences he was deported on eight occasions and married an estimated eight wives. Using notes kept on him by the late Hugh Trevor-Roper (the Professor), Sisman does his own research too and uncovers an entertaining, tortuous tale.
