Bank robbers have always fascinated Americans: Jesse James, John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde. In "Where the Money Is", FBI Special Agent William J. Rehder, the man CBS News once described as "America's secret weapon against bank robbers", chronicles the lives and crimes of bank robbers in today's Los Angeles who are as colourful 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 blue-print for a spree of violent robberies: this title explores these stories and more, all within a pistol shot of Hollywood, but as vivid as anything on the big screen.
