Black Dogs: The Possibly True Story of Classic Rock's Greatest Robbery

When my husband, Jeff (owner of led-zeppelin.org), asked me to read and write a review on a Led Zeppelin book Black Dogs by Jason Buhrmester, I admit I was skeptical - I am NOT a Led Zeppelin fan.

However, all that being said, I picked up Black Dogs and I began reading. Honestly, this was on book I could not put down - I even walked around the house while reading.

Mr. Buhrmester has a way of writing that makes this story of the theft of Led Zeppelin's money almost believable.

Throughout the story of a bunch of bumbling idiots, and how they may have pulled off this "heist" was quite entertaining and very hilarious at time. More often than not, I had to shake my head at the imporbability of the "heist" happening as Mr. Buhrmester writes, but in actuality, a lot of "heists" happen in the way he proposes.

All in all, the Black Dogs book was an extremely interesting read and I would most likely be reading it again. I highly recommend all Led Zeppelin fans read it, as well as those that like the true crime books, and even for the general fiction reader. You definitely won't be disappointed! I wasn't! --Michelle Strawman, July 11, 2009
