Robbers: True Stories of the World’s Most Notorious Thieves by Andreas Schroeder

Cover image for Robbers! : true stories of the world's most notorious thievesThis is a great book to read if you are looking for something that you can put down sometimes and then come back to it later, and that is because each chapter is about a different person and there are some great comic style pictures throughout the book. While this is a nonfiction book, it reads more like fiction. Have you ever heard of a thief who stole a painting and then, rather than sell it for money, held onto it or the illustrious career of Arthur Barry, the classiest thief in Manhattan? Well, if you are interested in these characters as well as bank robbers and others, check Robbers out. Warning: Do not attempt these feats in your lifetime, just read about them.
