Ballad of the Whiskey Robber - Julian Rubinstein
Found this book while searching for books set in Hungary for the Around the World Challenge. I hadn't heard of the Whiskey Robber before reading the book, which is a fascinating account of Attila Ambrus, who robbed banks and eluded police in Budapest in the 1990s. I will say that I was surprised by some clunky turns of phrase I didn't expect, but the story was engrossing and it left me wanting to learn more about the events and people described.
