Earlier today whilst researching this very review I ran a google search for Heat movie gunfight and was predictably met with several videos capturing the famous scene from Michael Mann s 1995 crime drama a longtime favorite of mine That being said I was also met with a series of uestions halfway down the page underneath the People also ask section the first of which being Is the movie Heat realistic A week ago I would ve uneuivocally answered no because well it s a movie albeit one loosely based off of a true story Then again a week ago I had yet to have consumed Peter Houlahan s Norco 80 The True Story of the Most Spectacular Bank Robbery in American History To say the book s subtitle lives up to its declaration would understate its spectacular ness But as Twain famously said Truth is stranger than fiction but it is because fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities truth isn t The truths Norco 80 depicts are in a word astonishing The stuff of Hollywood blockbusters or better still great fiction After all who in their right mind would decide to rob a bank with enough artillery to take on and likely defeat the National Guard No one Which is to say the leader of the five person crew that centers Norco 80 was batshit Crazy with a capital C And that is where Houlahan s recounting begins with the story of a man named George Wayne Smith A Vietnam vet Smith is also a devout born again Christian who saw the May 1980 eruption of Mount St Helens as a sign of an impending rapture Alongside his roommate and fellow Christian Chris Harven Smith had begun preparing his property for the inevitable end of days outfitting it with barbed wire digging trenches to be used as bunkers and stockpiling food and weapons Lots and lots of weapons One thing Smith had not done during his exhaustive doomsday preparation is generate any substantial income Mortgage payments fell behind Child support too Their part time jobs as landscapers hardly covered these costs they needed money and they needed it fast And so they gathered up a few other friends specifically Chris s sibling Russ and a pair of brothers Manny and Billy and decided to rob a bank Suffice to say things do not go as planned What follows is complete madness a carjacking turned kidnapping a highly flawed robbery attempt a WWIII like shootout and a standoff in the mountains Several are injured and one police officer is slain along with Billy and Manny And that s in just the first 120 pages Mimicking the events as they unfold Houlahan takes on a frenetic pacing that s wholly absorbing and borderline chaotic Had I been sitting I would ve been on the edge of my seat truth be told I was too amped up to stay still This hardly changed upon reading Norco 80 s back half wherein Houlahan describes the subseuent court trial one of the longest and most expensive in American history of the three surviving bank robbers As if things weren t already strange the trial takes it to new wildly unexpected levels that are all but impossible to summarize in a few sentences With every new bizarre detail unfurled the narrative is pushed into unbelievable territories those typically reserved for fiction What s Houlahan also juxtaposes his true crime drama with a deep dive into the post traumatic stress many of the participants experienced and the means to which many law enforcement agencies took to support these struggles These means are about the only positive result of what was ultimately one of the harrowing events in American history Strangest tooMy uibbles with Norco 80 were minor there are many personalities involved especially during the trial phase some of which get lost in the mix to the point of becoming just names on a page I imagine when Netflix inevitably gets their grubby little hands on this and develops it into the hot new true crime docuseries these details will be tightened up through supers not to mention the actual faces to match them And hey even if that series is never created at least we ll have Houlahan s account to revert to Frankly I couldn t think of a adept writer than Peter Houlahan a former EMT who was a first responder to the Sandy Hook tragedy as well as a holder of an MFA from Sarah Lawrence to recount this unbelievable tale That Norco 80 is his first book is perhaps the most unbelievable fact of all That Twain was clearly on to something eh
