Terry Smith has earned his wisdom and hard way. Once a professional armed robber, he is adamant that he has long since put down the sword and taken up the pen. Within the pages of this book, law-abiding citizens and aspiring career criminals alike will find expert analysis of: The Great Train Robbery - the 1960s template for all that follows; the criminal masterwork that left 'a goldmine of incriminating evidence'. The Bank of America Robbery - the audacious 1970s raid that netted GBP8-GBP12 million of cash, jewellery and compromising photos. The Security Express Depot Robbery - the classic 1980s heist, for which notorious villains the Knight brothers and Freddie Foreman all took a fall. The Knightsbridge Safe Deposit Centre Robbery - the masterstroke of Italian super-villain and international fugitive 'Gigi' Viccei. The Millennium Dome Robbery - 'the great armed robbery that never was', in which a small army of firearms officers lay in wait for the unarmed Greenwich raiders.
