Product Description

From the Back Cover

Police dubbed Michael Syrnyk "The Yuletide Bandit" following a series of dramatic, daylight Christmastime robberies in 1998, 1999 and 2000 that left citizens fearing for their safety and police searching for an apparent psychopath. One of Syrnyk’s most notorious shoot—outs occurred during a December 2000 robbery outside Polo Park Shopping Centre, Winnipeg’s busiest mall. Dozens of Christmas shoppers — including senior citizens — dove for cover as bullets flew and glass shattered. Yuletide is a true crime thriller that chronicles Syrnyk’s crime spree across western Canada to his eventual capture in a brothel in Winnipeg’s red light district.

I really enjoyed this book to the point where I was digging up old newspaper articles, fantasizing about actually doing these crimes. It's amazing that one guy can get away with these types of crimes for so long. I remember the day I purchased this book and was amazed that a normal kid just suddenly morphs into a criminal. A very interesting look in to the criminal mind

The book arrived on time and was carefully packaged; however, it is supposed to be in very good condition with little visible wear. It is yellowed, has "WITHDRAWN" stamped on three sides and a library sticker/barcode on the front and spine that can't be removed. This isn't what I was expecting.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
for everyone who has read this book or heard the stories.. all I can say is that this is the poorest written piece of crap I have ever read.. basically the only truths were taken from the actual police statements, all the personal stories about him, his life and his relationships with friends and family,, were grossly exaggerated by the author,,,I should know I was there,,, I saw it all. So.. just because a book gets published, dont think its all true.
