MONTY McCORD. The 1931 Hastings Bank Job & The Bloody Bandit Trail. The History Press. Paperback, 160 pages, $19.99, www.historypress.net.

It was called “the slickest job that has been pulled on a Nebraska bank in history.” Monty McCord tells the true story of the Hastings bank robbery of 1931 in a fast-paced and engaging style carried along by elements seemingly out of a blood-and- thunder novel. Five polite bandits tied up 14 bank employees, opened the vault and then walked out with more than $27,000. Police quickly surrounded the house the bandits were using, but the robbers were able to capture all 11 officers, including a police captain, and make their getaway!
