Overview

“[Bilefsky] clearly got the goods for this captivating account of an unforgettable crime.”— Kirk W. Johnson, author of The Feather Thief

Over Easter weekend 2015, a motley crew of six aging English thieves couldn’t resist coming out of retirement for one last career-topping heist. Though not the smoothest of criminals, these analog crooks in a digital age managed to disable the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit’s high-security alarm system and drill through twenty inches of reinforced concrete, walking away with a stunning haul of at least $19 million in jewels, gold, diamonds, family heirlooms, and cash.

Dan Bilefsky draws on unrivaled access to the leading officers on the case at Scotland Yard, as well as notorious criminals from London’s shadowy underworld, to offer a gripping account of how these unassuming criminal masterminds nearly pulled off one of the greatest heists of the century.

I enjoyed reading this true crime about a jewelry heist in England. The crime was planned and attempted by an elderly group of career criminals. This is supposed to be their one big score so they can retire but things do not go as planned. The story is exciting and it kept me reading but the book could have done with some editing. Photographs accompany the text. Enjoy.
