Wow. It took me awhile to really get into this book but once I did I was hooked. So glad I stuck with it. There is something about unrepentant criminality that I find very alluring.

I grew up hearing about this guy from my parents. My dad was friends with him back in the day as they grew up in the same town. Then he went off and started to rob banks.

It is really horrible to know he does only 20 years for bank robbery, gets out then becomes a TEACHER. Then boom does it again cause he's high (not a great reason to rob a bank) gets life in prison only to get out in 14 years.

He wins awards for his writing while in jail. I believe they even optioned a movie for this book. I hope

Written by Stephen Reid, Jackrabbit Parole Is a work of fiction despite being penned by the one of the members of the notorious Stop Watch Gang, famed for their perfectly timed bank robberies. Well written! My interest in Stephen Reid was piqued when I read of his recent death.
