"You'll see that quickly in these nine compelling and true stories of brilliant plans and guile. The thieves awaiting you seem to have it all: They are clever, cool, and determined with icy resolve. It took a lot of guts and nerves of steel to do what they did and not fold under the pressure. After all, if those hardwrought plans had failed, they would have had plenty of time in prison to think about what went wrong. Hijack an airplane, demand a ransom and two parachutes, then disappear? Invent a device that allows you to record the combination of any bank vault, then break into bank vaults twice? Steal from a secret mob depository run by a boss known for his brutality? Rob a small-town bank at midday and ride off without a second thought? Piece of cake. The Greatest Heist Stories Ever Told allows readers to appreciate the efforts that go into a truly magnificent heist."--Page 4 of cover.
