Most Active Robbers In United States History

".....The Gang They Couldn't Catch is the fascinating true story of David Grandstaff and his gang of modern-day outlaws, perhaps the MOST ACTIVE ROBBERS IN UNITED STATES HISTORY, who have walked away with at least $10 million in the years since they met in an Iowa schoolyard in the 1950s....."

Grandstaff fan

I am married to a Grandstaff and my family is from Des Moines, it is a fascinating read. It is a shame that the book is out of print because many would enjoy this story.

True Story

David Grandstaff is my cousin, and I must say that this book is written so terrific even I didnt know some of these things. Definetly a must read for people intrested in true crime.

Grandstaff Gang

Absolutely brilliantly written story. I have recommended this book over and over again. I wish it wasn't out of print, because people I have talked to about it have found it hard to obtain. It not only chronicles an amazing story, but also shows the "underside" that exists in many of the larger, industrial towns in Iowa--something that most people don't know about and don't believe exists if they haven't spent a lot of time in the state. A real page turner, and while it's hard to sympathize with criminals, one has to have a grudging admiration for Grandstaff and Weir. Theft was their chosen profession and they were good at it.
