The Boonie Hat Bandit is a must read for Criminal Justice students. Having worked with the Colorado Department of Corrections (DOC), as the Chief of Staff; Inspector General; Director of Prisons; and as an under-cover police officer inside a prison as an inmate. This book portrays the reality of a first time offender and his struggles through the criminal justice system. I would also recommend the book as a text book for Correctional Training Academies to depict
how inmates manipulate DOC Staff.”Bob Cantwell

In this true story, the St. Louis area is gripped by a spree of twelve bank robberies that leave local and federal authorities baffled. Dubbed the Boonie Hat Bandit, this criminal methodically robs banks in broad daylight leaving everyone to wonder, Who is this man?  Law enforcement is scrambling, and the robberies make national news.


In September 2008, the suspect is apprehended and the world finds out his shocking identity: Donald Keith Giammanco, a quiet, middle-class, single father of twin daughters. The big mystery remains: How and why would he enter a life of crime? In spite of requests to tell his story, Keith Giammanco refuses to give insights into his motivations for years, until now.


Written by the woman he falls in love with while in prison, Bank Notes delves into the thoughts and motivations of a notorious bank robber who is anything but the typical criminal.
