Description : The Crime of the Century. The biggest train heist in Britain’s history. The Great Train Robbery. In the early hours of Thursday, 8th August 1963, a fifteen-strong gang stole £2.6 million (£45 million of today’s money) from the Glasgow to London mail train at Sears Crossing, Buckinghamshire. The crime was so epic; every single development of the case was followed tirelessly by the press. Countless books have since been published and, even today, films, television dramas and documentaries continue to study the smallest of details of one of the most daring and cleverly concocted criminal plans of all-time. Much of the gang were later captured and paid the price with lengthy jail sentences. But 50 years on, many still question who the real mastermind behind the plot. For years most people accepted that Bruce Reynolds was but is that really the case? One man knows the answer and the true identity of the man behind the robbery all too well. In this engrossing biography, the only living person who personally knows the real mastermind revisits the Great Train Robbery and rewrites history as we know it. Full of explosive, fresh revelations, The Secret Train Robber sees the final piece of the puzzle firmly set in place and the name of one of Britain’s most sophisticated criminal minds ever is finally revealed.

Description : The Squad that investigated The Great Train Robbery. "The Old Grey Fox" or "One Day Tommy" (Detective Chief Superintendent Tommy Butler) selected six of the best officers on the elite Metropolitan Police Flying Squad to investigate the Crime of the Century, but whilst many books have been written by and about every criminal arrested for this crime, NONE have been written about the detectives who traced and tracked them. Tommy Butler delayed his retirement to complete the job, but died a few months after he retired at 57 years of age, the only detective of his rank in the late 1950s and 1960s not to publish an autobiography.??This book provides a detailed account of the men tasked with tracking down the most notorious thieves in British history. It examines the investigation in detail and asks how it would contrast with the methods used today should a similar incident take place.??Geoff Platt examines what happened to these men after the investigation was closed and the effect it had on both their personal and professional lives.

Description : Definitive account of the famous 1963 Great Train Robbery - and its aftermath. In the early hours of Thursday 8th August 1963 at rural Cheddington in Buckinghamshire, £2.6 million (£50 million today) in unmarked £5, £1 and 10-shilling notes was stolen from the Glasgow to London nightmail train in a daring and brilliantly executed operation lasting just 46 minutes. Quickly dubbed the crime of the century, it has captured the imagination of the public and the world's media for 50 years, taking its place in British folklore and giving birth to the myths of The Great Train Robbery. Ronnie Biggs, Buster Edwards and Bruce Reynolds became household names. But what really happened? This is the story of four talented villains who took the criminal world by storm, of the 'perfect crime'. It is also the story of ruthless policemen, determined to hunt the robbers down and to make sure nobody slipped through the net, not even the innocent. It is the story of an Establishment under siege, and of one mistake which cost the robbers 307 years in prison. Fifty years later, here is the story set out in full for the first time, a true-life crime thriller, and also a vivid slice of British social history.

Description : A fictional retelling of the story behind the great train robbery, providing a sinister portrayal of the loyalties and fear operating within criminal and police circles in the sixties. If you thought the great train robbers were unlucky to get caught, you don’t know half the story... In the early hours of the 8th August 1963, several men hold up a GPO mail train in rural Buckinghamshire. Two and a half million pounds (equivalent to over £45 million today) is snatched from under the noses of the GPO, the police and the establishment. This creates a gang of heroes who the public fall in love with; some of whom, like Ronnie Biggs, become a part of British folklore. But behind the bravado lays a darker story; one of greed, betrayal, and both thieves and police turning on each other. Eddie Maloney, an IRA fundraiser, and Tommy Lavery, a northern crime boss, know who the robbers are and where they live, because they hired them for the job. The men traditionally seen as ‘Robin Hoods’ were set up and all, with the exception of Biggs, are brought to justice – unsurprising, given that Maloney and Lavery reach deep inside the investigating Flying Squad. There is a reason that most of the money from the robbery was never recovered – the two men at the top systematically robbed and cheated the men who did the dirty work. In the aftermath, will there be honour between the two masterminds of the operation – the two men who were never caught? There have been some attempts to catalogue the story of the great train robbery in the past, almost all from a factual perspective, looking at both the thieves and police. This fictionalised account adds a fascinating twist to the story and will appeal to lovers of thrillers – especially crime thrillers – and those interested in true crime.
