North Conway ´ 3 download [EPUB] (King of Heists The Sensational Bank Robbery of 1878 that Shocked New York City) The dust jacket promised the riveting true story of one of America's most notorious crimes and the mysterious man behind it I can't say I was riveted for about 85% of this book It wasn't what I expected It turned out to be a discussion of the Gilded Age's major players like Jubliee Jim Fisk Boss Tweed the Robber Barons and Marm Mendelbaum than about George Leslie and his sensational bank heists I suppose that

review King of Heists The Sensational Bank Robbery of 1878 that Shocked New York City Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB An absorbing tale of greed sex crime betrayal an. This book is supposedly about 1878 robbery of the Manhattan Savings Institution I would estimate no than twenty pages are devoted to that specific topic instead the book broadly follows the bank robbery career of George Leslie who masterminded many bank robberies in the 1870sThis book desperately needed a good editor one who believed that the average reader didn t need a brief reminder of who each and every character was every time they were mentioned It s not uncommon for a paragraph to be devoted to introducing a character on one page and then on the very next page for some of that introduction to be repeated the next time said character is mentioned This was infuriating and if it had been eliminated this book would probably only have been two thirds the lengthAnd then there s the organization The book is generally laid out in chronological order except occasionally events far in the future are mentioned in passing There are many paragraphs which don t seem to really fit in at all instead being things that the author apparently found interestingAnd then there s the uestion of facts Reading this book one gets the impression that Conway took many liberties Several alternative explanations of key events are mentioned in passing at the end of the bookParts of this book were interesting it would have made a really interesting 10 page magazine article But a 200 page novel No

review King of Heists The Sensational Bank Robbery of 1878 that Shocked New York City Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB D murder King of Heists blends all the richness. King of Heists covers the career of George Leslie also known as the King of the Bank Robbers Using intense planning and a new innovation he called The Little Joker Leslie would pull of a host of stunning bank robberies and assist others in doing so for a 20000 consultant fee Leslie would employ disguises his near photographic memory and his skills as an architect to build a replica vault for the robbery He stole only thins that could be transferred easily and did not bother with things like stock certificates that reuired the owner s signature to sell He employed inside men since he had to break into the banks twice once to plant the little joker and a second to return with the combination Conway takes us into the heart of the Gilded Age as Leslie has relations with Jim Fisk s mistress and other notable criminal figures from Boss Tweed to Mother Mandelbaum The book hits many of the high points of the Gilded Age and takes you into some of the lesser known characters It has all the makings of a great book but the editors who allowed it to go to print have hopefully been fired as the book was nearly unreadable at times There was no punctuation to break up long run on sentences information was repeated ad nauseum as if it were new and sections were often alluding to something that was not talked about until chapters ahead as if it had already been covered Sadly it was a book that should have been a home run and wound up being a strike out with the editing
