Editorial Reviews

"This is a stick-up." What began with four simple words on January 17, 1950, became the Great Brinks Robbery, the biggest heist in American history. The seven thieves who pulled off the Brinks armored car job in garish Halloween masks left almost no clues; the FBI and Beantown police were reduced to sifting through gangster rumors and other false leads. The Crime of the Century tracks the notorious crime from planning to exposure and beyond.
