THIEF! character, Vince Eli

Tuesday, February 5, 2008


It's been a while since I plugged a book. Well, here's one you won't want to miss. Rick Porrello's Superthief - A Master Burglar, the Mafia and the Biggest Bank Heist in U.S. History, hit bookstores in 2006.

Famed author and FBI agent Joseph "Donnie Brasco" Pistone called Superthief "...a well-written, fast-paced and insightful look at an historic crime rarely attempted."

Superthief also won ForeWord Magazine’s Second Place True Crime spot at its 2006 Book of the Year Awards. And Midwest Book Review said "Superthief is to be given high praise and very strong recommendation...” The title has also been optioned for film.

These reviews barely scratch the surface. If you want a more in-depth take on Superthief, please check out Rick's famous Website, where yours truly interviewed Superthief himself, Phil Christoper, while serving time in Elkton Federal Correctional Institution in Ohio. BTW, he's still incarcerated. Here's the link:

Happy reading.
