Eight thrilling stories uncover some of the most daring heists in history.

Here's what reviewers said about Duped! the first book in the series:
A solid yet playful tour of the huckster's world.
--Kirkus Reviews

Determined to beat the odds, professional thieves spend their lives figuring out ingenious ways to steal other people's possessions. In Robbers! you'll uncover the dirt on eight cunning master thieves, including:

Master-of-disguise Willie Sutton, who robbed banks in costume D. B. Cooper, who hijacked a plane, demanded $200,000, and parachuted to safety London's Great Train Robbers, who held up a moving train to pull off one of the largest ever hauls of banknotes

Each story offers a glimpse into the high-octane underworld of the boldest of robbers. The writer's fascination with criminal masterminds and the illustrator's action-packed graphic depictions of real-life thievery make this a compelling read for fans of mischief, mayhem, and bad guys on the run.

And so the manhunt begins for D.B. Cooper who jumped from a 727 (with a parachute) from 10,000 feet and survived. But where's the money?

Another great book, but not really my favourite. It did have a lot of interesting stories, but it just wasn't that gripping.
