The true story of John Kiriamiti — a participant in some of the most heinous bank robberies and heists in Kenya in the late 1960s and early 70s. In raw and candid language, Kiriamiti tells the story of how he dropped out of high school at a tender age of 15 and went from pick pocketing, to car breaking, and ultimately to violent bank robbery. The plot thickens with one robbery after another, with the police hunting him and his squad relentlessly. He is finally arrested and imprisoned for 15 years. This spell-binding story takes the reader into the underworld of crime, and it graphically depicts the criminal’s struggle for survival against the forces of law and order.
