Overview

A fascinating insider's insight into Britain's most infamous organised robberies. This type of highly organised criminal trade is best left to the professionals and should be avoided at all cost-as even professionals frequently come unstuck. Terry Smith, author and convicted armed robber From piracy on the high seas to the recent Securitas depot robbery in Kent, Britain has a long and inglorious tradition of armed robbery as a way of life. In this uniquely compelling history, reformed career criminal Terry Smith brings the benefit of hard-won wisdom to his analysis of all the major cases. Casting a sharp eye over both the dangerously devil-may-care blagger and the more organised professional villain , he brings an insider s point of view to the most high-profile armed robberies of the past 50 years. Each chapter has a full and comprehensive account of the robbery in the words of those who participated in it (including some exclusive interview material), the media, police and court records starting from the initial spark through to the planning, organization and execution of the crime, and how it came to be solved by law enforcement.
