Death Warrant - Kenneth Noye, the Brink's-Mat Robbery and the Gold
Pearson, Will
$16.00
If you've bought gold jewellery since 1983, you're probably wearing part of the melted-down Brink's-Mat hoard. On a cold, grey morning in 1983, a gang of masked and armed men stole £26 million in gold bullion from the Brink's-Mat high-security warehouse. The biggest robbery in British history, it unleashed a trail of murder, betrayal and revenge; forced a young woman into hiding for the rest of her life; and kick-started global money laundering. In on the heist from the very first, Noye helped turn the gold into cash - and stabbed to death the undercover policeman sent to catch him. Pearson's searing, no-punches-pulled page-turner brilliantly recreates one of the most extraordinary stories in the history of crime. It is a tale of criminal cunning and stupidity, of brilliant detective work marred by Keystone Cops-style failure, greed, ostentation, high-rolling gangsters, their wives and mistresses...
