My Take on Ballad of the Whiskey Robber:
I don’t believe in trying to improve on perfection. In that spirit, here is the synopsis:
“A true story of bank heists, ice hockey, Transylvanian pelt smuggling, moonlighting detectives, and broken hearts.”
None on that is made up or embellished. This is the funniest book I’ve read in a long time. And it is all true.
Verdict on Ballad of the Whiskey Robber:
Why aren’t you reading it yet? Buy it here and now.
