FBI Special Agent William J. Rehder, the man CBS News once described as "America's secret weapon in the war against bank robbers," chronicles the lives and crimes of bank robbers in today's Los Angeles who are as colorful and exciting as the legends of long ago. The mild-mannered antiques dealer who robbed more banks than anyone else in history. The modern Fagin who took a page out of Dickens and had children rob banks for him. The misfit bodybuilders who used a movie as a blueprint for a spree of violent robberies. In a fast-paced, hard-edged style that reads like a novel, "Where the Money Is" carries us through these stories and more-all within a pistol shot of Hollywood, all true-life tales as vivid as anything on the big screen.
"Who knew bank robberies could be so interesting? This collection of essays centering on memorable bank robbers tracked-and in most cases captured-by retired FBI agent Rehder reads like fiction." -- Library Journal "Starred Review. Fast-paced, hard-boiled, anecdotal account of pursuing bank robbers... the details from pursuits dating back to 1966 are as fresh as if they happened yesterday. Enough rich material here to spawn another night of TV crime drama. Law & Order: Bank Robbery Squad, anyone?" -- Kirkus Reviews
