Book Recommendation: Ballad of the Whiskey Robber

1 min read

I can offer you a suggestion that I doubt any of you would expect. Pure non-fiction this time…
Ballad of the Whiskey Robber: A True Story of Bank Heists, Ice Hockey, Transylvanian Pelt Smuggling, Moonlighting Detectives, and Broken Hearts By Julian Rubinstein
If you don’t already know, this is the true story of Atilla Ambrus, Hungary’s most famous and beloved bank robber. The guy went on a spree in the early 90’s, and all the while he was robbing banks, he was the backup goalie on the Budapest Championship hockey team!
This is one of those tales that would fall flat on its face if it were fiction. Let’s face it, though… The endless possibilities of billions of people put in bizarre circumstances in bizarre places, will always trump mere human imagination… or… for those who are more into the whole brevity thing…
Truth is stranger than fiction.
