No, non, nyet, nein...........now you have the idea of my opinion of this book, which seems to be shared with other reviewers. The sad part is that there is probably a good story here but trying to find it will shatter your nerves.
George Leslie was a master criminal whose specialty was bank robbery. He spent months, and sometimes years planning the perfect heists and got away with them without anyone suspecting this sophisticated man-about-town who lived in high style in NYC. An excellent basis for an informative look at one of the smartest of crooks. But the author missed the boat with his approach, which by the way, barely touches on the robbery of the title. I'm not sure I've ever read a story that was so repetitive. How many times do we have to be told that Leslie lived in the Fifth Avenue Hotel, that he was handsome, and had good manners. The author thought that repeating this about every four pages was sufficient. Additionally,for no apparent reason there were countless pages of information on people who were incidental or not connected in any way to Mr. Leslie's life. And these are only some of the issues that made me want to take two aspirin and lie down for a while!
I can't believe I actually finished this book. Avoid it like the plague!!
