Overview

In this entertaining and engaging exploration of real-life British crime, underworld expert Wensley Clarkson tells the stories behind the 12 most daring armed robberies ever staged in the UK. This "dirty dozen" includes the notorious Chainsaw Fang Blackwall Tunnel raid of 1975, the drama of the huge Brinksmat gold bullion robbery of 1983, and the biggest cash theft in British history—the 2006 assult on the Securitas depot in Tonbridge, Kent. Using first-hand accounts and rare anecdotes, Clarkson offers the thrills, spills, and action of these dramatic crimes, told in compelling detail.
