Bank Heists, Ice Hockey, and Transylvanian Pelt Smuggling

I’ve been searching for the best book for my upcoming vacation. I have a lot of unread books to choose from. They’ve been sitting dormant on my bookshelves for months (some of them have been hanging around for years).

But a new book popped into my possession today that will trump all others: Ballad of the Whiskey Robber written by Julian Rubinstein. Chris recommended it to me as we perused the Borders bargain bin, and he treated me to the book – thanks Chris!

I’m not sure how to prepare myself for a book with a back cover synopsis that starts with “Attila Ambrus was a gentleman thief, a sort of Cary Grant—if only Grant came from Transylvania, was a terrible professional hockey goalkeeper, and preferred women in leopard-skin hot pants.”


Like I said, thanks Chris.
