Good true story crime book about a serial criminal that started robbing banks & moved up to robbing brinks trucks. Along the way stole guns and other equipment from stores too. Even stole some jewelry from jewelry store. Was basically a successful criminal for 8 years, didn't get caught. Got shot in the ankle once & kind of recovered but think had a limp for a while. Basically only got caught because he was doing big time amount of drugs--cocaine & crack, instead of his more normal joints & pills he was doing before. The drugs made him paranoid and he realized he told a prostitute that he was kind of dating that he was this criminal. So he takes more drugs & then takes her hostage and being unable to kill himself after letting her go, he comes down from high and falls asleep where then cops bust in & arrest him. This is all in Canada where laws different but he only gets 23 years--seems really really light but oh well. Good story & interesting details. I checked news & can't find anything recent so guess still in jail, this is like 12 years or so later--would have been up for parole a few years back for first time.
There were no copies on PBS so I posted it a couple days ago and it has already been requested. It was requested before I even finished the book. It is done & will go off in the mail tomorrow.
