Not infrequently you hear the phrase "if I wrote this in a book, no one would believe it." I submit the story of The Roofman as the single best example of this I have recently come across. I can practically see the cover--and the reviews--for the novel. My favorite detail: when he was robbing fast food restaurants he would hand out coats to people before locking them in the walk-in-freezer. But you can choose your own favorite bit.
