Publisher Description

“[Bilefsky] is a brisk, enthusiastic storyteller.… [A] meticulously researched procedural.” —Laura Lippman, New York Times

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 blokes, 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 $21 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 figures from London’s shadowy underworld, to offer a gripping account of how these unassuming masterminds nearly pulled off one of the greatest heists of the century.
