Around noon on December 23, 1927 Santa Claus strolled through the town of Cisco, Texas, patting children's heads, and chatting with locals. He did not come bearing candy or gifts, however, nor did he care who was naughty or nice. No, this particular Santa and his helpers were there to rob a bank.

He did not come bearing candy or gifts, however, nor did he care who was naughty or nice. No, this particular Santa and his helpers were there to rob a bank. At first, Marshall Ratliff's white beard and red coat seemed the perfect disguise. A few minutes into the heist, things began to unravel. After a shootout riddling the bank with no less than 200 bullet holes, a car chase, and the abduction of two little girls, this particular Santa Claus became the focus of one of the largest manhunts in Texas state history. But the story does not end there. Tui Snider's extensive research includes quotes from eyewitnesses, photos, and a myriad of quirky facts to round out this strange-but-true crime story. Along the way, Tui Snider discovered some intriguing loose ends, clues pointing to a mysterious blonde woman. Did the notorious Santa and his crew have a female helper, and did she get away with murder?...

    If I recall correctly, Tui talked about this case in one of her other books and it was an interesting tale. I'm glad she looked into it more, but it was fun delving into the history of the case. The people are fleshed out more and you learn more of their history. I have to say, I really felt for Ratcliff's mom. She had such faith in her son and he was just a bad seed in my opinion. (view spoiler)[The mystery of the blonde never really gets solved. It seems one of those weird things that happen, but since none of us where there, we can't really say if she was real or not. (hide spoiler)] The book is a nice slice of the early 1900s and some of the crazy things that happened.
