9780752878096: Death Warrant: Kenneth Noye, the Brink's-Mat Robbery And The Gold

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 near Heathrow. 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, Kenneth Noye helped turn the gold into cash - and stabbed to death the undercover policeman sent to catch him. Acquitted of murder, Noye spent ten years in jail for handling the gold. Released, he stabbed another man to death in Britain's first 'road rage' killing. This time, he ran. Will Pearson's searing, no-punches-pulled page-turner takes us from the grimy back streets of Peckham via secret Spanish villas and a Cosa Nostra Florida condominium to the high life in Switzerland, playing an expert light on one of the most extraordinary stories in the history of crime: a tale of criminal cunning and stupidity in equal measure; of brilliant detective work marred by Keystone Cops-style failure; greed, ostentation, high-rolling gangsters, their wives and mistresses, and 'Brinks' & 'Mat', the Rottweilers bought to guard ill-gotten gains. Pearson brings us right up to date with the suspected location of the ton of gold that is still missing presumed buried. If you've bought gold jewellery since 1983, you are probably wearing part of the melted-down Brink's-Mat hoard.

About the Author:

Will Pearson is a journalist, broadcaster and writer. When the first Gulf War broke out, realising there was a great story waiting to be told, he approached RAF pilot Flt Lt John Peters and navigator Flt Lt John Nichol - who had been shot down and captured by the Iraqis - to write the best-selling TORNADO DOWN. Since then, he has written five more books, including THE SHOOTING GALLERY, a searing account of life in the SAS. He lives in London with his wife and two children.

Review:

'An engrossing read that will grip you by the throat' DAILY MAIL
