Ballad of the Whiskey Robber: A True Story of Bank Heists, Ice Hockey, Transylvanian Pelt Smuggling, Moonlighting Detectives, and Broken Hearts  by Julian Rubinstein

With a subtitle like that, what’s left to say about it? This is one of those truth-stranger-than-fiction tales that’s just too crazy for anyone to make up. It’s also funnier than most fiction. You’ll fall in love with this hapless bandit, just like all of Hungary did! Check it out at Goodreads.
