Praise

“Stephen Jackley, the ‘Robin Hood’ bank robber, is a student with an incredible, increasingly dark story, which Ben Machell tells with Hollywood box-office wit, compassion, and brio. With every page, you find yourself screaming, ‘OH MY GOD—WHAT ARE YOU DOING, STEPHEN?’ all the way to him ending up in a U.S. prison. . . . How one young man’s misguided plan to save the world went dangerously wrong.”—Caitlin Moran, New York Times bestselling author of How to Be a Woman

“Meet Stephen: university student, bank robber, modern-day Robin Hood, human being. He was good at only one of them; thankfully, it was the only one that mattered. . . . A truly remarkable story.”—Terry Hayes, New York Times bestselling author of I Am Pilgrim

“Was Stephen Jackley a cynical attention seeker, or an idealist fighting a broken system, or something else entirely? Whatever the truth, his story—superbly written and expertly reported—reveals the troubling place of finance at the center of all of our lives.”—Oliver Bullough, author of Moneyland

“A well-written page-turner . . . a fast-paced true-crime tale.”Kirkus Reviews
