I was still in diapers when the Stander gang went bank hopping and didn't learn of them growing up. I came across their story by accident while looking for info on Daisy De Melker on the internet. I was intrigued, but information was scarce. Then I got hold of a second hand copy of Stander...Bank Robber by Moorcraft and Cohen. Until now I figured it is the best source of stander information out there, but written without much inside info. When Allan Heyl was released from prison I prayed that a book would follow, but it didn't come and I was completely surprised when I found it.
Even though we all know how the story ends there were times that the author had my heart racing as he describes tense situations.
This is a well written book and it answers a lot of questions about the 'Stander gang' that many people may have. Many people will be able to relate to the author, but I found that I in particular can relate. I also suffer from debilitating depression. I have worked in the foundry industry, I spent two years as a sales representative where I got to know Johannesburg well. I lived in Pretoria's northern suburbs and I lived in Cullinan for a couple of years. My point is that I could picture the places described in the book quite well, the foundry and sales job descriptions as well as the frequent descriptions of depression.
This book is a must read for everyone.
