Red Ryan's Story Is Almost Certainly True.
From the outset, Jim Brown admits his new book, "The Golden Boy of Crime" is "almost" certainly true. The former CBC host is back with a new book that takes a look at the life and career of one of the most notorious bank robbers of all time. Red Ryan ran roughshod over banks, the police, the public, the press and the prison system and he did it against the backdrop of being a celebrity outlaw. Jim Brown will be appearing on June 4 at the Memorial Park Library in Calgary with tickets available through wordfest.com. Ahead of his book launch, Jim Brown spoke with Russell Bowers.
