Overview

The robbers had a crew of two dozen specialists, a stolen helicopter, speedboats, perfectly-designed explosives, and inside information on a $150 million cash repository in Stockholm. But the police were on to them—or so they thought. What happened next would make headlines around the world, but the robbery was just part of the story. The Atavist, a new home for original nonfiction storytelling, presents Evan Ratliff's inside tale of one of history's most elaborate heists, and the race to unravel it.

    Riveting Tale!

    Sure, we don't get all the bells and whistles of the iPad version, but it is a great story nonetheless and I am glad to support fine journalism.

    DO NOT BUY THIS.

    I bought the version for Nook. It's a joke. No multimedia. The links are dead. Save your two bucks.

    Dreams

    I went to sleep and had a dream
    <br>Of drinking this delicious cream
    <br>That had warm billows of steam
    <br>And I looked at the wonderful green theme.
    <p>I dreamed last night
    <br>Of my greatest fright
    <br>That my brain turned left and not right
    <br>And my thoughts turned pure white.
    <p>Last night I read a good book
    <br>Then I went to sleep and tried to look
    <br>At my lucky fish hook
    <br>I tried and I tried but my glasses had someone took . . .
    <p>In my dream I met a goat
    <br>Who wanted to ride in my imaginary boat
    <br>I told him no and I turned away but he chewed on my bright red coat.
    <br>He only left when I drowned him in the moat.
