M. Stevens-David Review: "The Accidental Bank Heist" by Judith Slaughter

"The Accidental Bank Heist - How to Rob a Bank Without Really Trying," by Judith Slaughter was a nice little story that held my interest right to the very end and the ending held a "surprise" for the reader too.

The promotional material states that the author had a thirty-year career in banking, and retired as Vice President of Bank of America. During her career Judith Slaughter lived through bank robberies and government financial manipulation and was successful in the financial industry even back when women were not getting professional jobs.

"The Accidental Bank Heist" follows a bank manager through the moral crisis of whether to keep the million dollars of stolen money that falls into her lap and through the repercussions of her decision.

Some of the chapters were somewhat "predictable" but not the ending. Well done.

Would I recommend this book to others? Absolutely!
