Publisher's Summary

An edge-of-your-seat caper based on one of the most sensational crimes in British history.

In August 1963, a Royal Mail train traveling between Glasgow and London was forced to make an unscheduled stop. Led by a charismatic jewel thief, a gang of fifteen unarmed men boarded the train, incapacitated the driver, and made off with more than 2 million. Divided equally, it was more than enough money for them to disappear forever—if they could all keep quiet.

Incensed by the brazenness of the crime, Scotland Yard investigators employed every means they could think of to get the thieves to turn on one another. Soon, a meticulous plan descended into a desperate free-for-all as the gang went down one by one. This heart-racing novel inspired by the Great Train Robbery asks the most fascinating question of all: Who talked?

This audiobook includes an afterword by Bruce Reynolds, mastermind of the Great Train Robbery.

    "More Mysteries About The Great Train Robbery"

    I remember the 'Great Train Robbery" as if it happened yesterday. The British public were, at first, a little indignant that these 'thugs' would steal from 'Her Majesty's Royal Mail'. However when it was discovered that they made a decision not to take guns as they did not want to seriously hurt anyone public opinion changed. People started to 'root' for these 'naughty lads'.

    When the Police brought in Tommy Butler, MBE to take over the investigation the Robbers knew that their time 'on the lamb' was limited as Tommy's nickname was 'One Day Tommy" as he was known to close to close cases in less than 24 hours!

    Robert Ryan has done plenty of research and unlike many books and articles on this subject he has kept to the facts. Ralph Lister's performance keeps it fresh and interesting.

    A good read/ listen.
