How can you not cheer for the Whiskey Robber? What a fascinating story about a sub-par Transylvanian hockey goalie who loved the good life and found a unique way to fund it. None of this would be possible today but during that time it was. I highly recommend this one.

Oh, be sure to view the video with the Whiskey Robber, Attila Ambrus at the author's Goodreads page. You may want to wait until you've finished the book so as not to spoil the details of the ending which is not a surprise.
