Abstract:

Dissatisfied with life on the Upper East Side, a socialite finds a new favorite pastime: robbing banks When James R. Hastings, president of the City Federal Bank, began construction of a new branch on Madison Avenue, he vowed to make it burglar proof. Vaults set forty feet below ground, an array of cameras, and a quartet of burly guards were intended to deter any bandit. But James Hastings did not count on being robbed by his wife. Three weeks after the bank opens, a demure old woman removes a Luger from her handbag and asks a clerk to empty her register, then disappears into the bathroom with a haul of over $50,000. When the guards arrive, a scared young woman flees the bathroom and points them to the stalls. Inside, they find nothing but a discarded disguise, while the young woman walks calmly out the front door. This is Penelope Hastings & mdash;a bored banker & rsquo;s wife who, now that she has taken up crime, will never be bored again. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author & rsquo;s estate.
