From the FBI's crack investigator: chilling variations on the creative pursuit of cash.
Americans have always been fascinated by bank robbers: 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 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.
