The Great Heist by Jeff McArthur

The Great Heist: The Story of the Biggest Bank Robbery in History
by Jeff McArthur [364.155 McA]

In 1930, six men entered a bank in Lincoln, NE and in 8 minutes made off with more than 2.7 million dollars. This book explores the local officials, a connection to Al Capone that led the Secret Six of Chicago to offer assistance, and Al Capone's brother who had disappeared but was living in Nebraska as an upright citizen. -- recommended by Sandy W. - Gere Branch Library
