"Fast-paced, hard-boiled, anecdotal...the details from pursuits dating back to 1966 are as fresh as if they happened yesterday. Enough rich material here to spawn another night of TV crime drama. Law & Order: Bank Rubbery Squad, anyone?"
Who knew bank robberies could be so interesting? This collection of essays centering on memorable bank robbers tracked and in most cases captured by retired FBI agent Rehder reads like fiction. "

This book is like the best heist novels (think Prince of Thieves), but the beautifully realized stories included are all true. You've got guys tunneling. You've got gang-bangers shooting up bank lobbies. You've got John Dillinger-esqe politeness with a few bank robbers. Plus, you have a veteran FBI bank-squad leader telling the stories of these robbers and how they caught them.
I dare say this might be one of the best books I've read in a long while. It's as interesting as the best crime novels, but full of true-crime humor and tragedy. At the end you'll say "I can't believe they thought they would get away with that." Or, "I can't believe they actually got away with that."
For any crime reader or heist junkie, this book is probably the best thing you'll read in either fiction or non-fiction. I can't recommend it highly enough.
This is one of the best non-fiction books that I have ever read. It is the kind of book that is hard to stop reading. Congratulations to retired FBI Special Agent William Rehder on an exemplary law enforcement career and for co-writing such an exceptional book.
