Product Description

Review

"Thrilling inside story of the most audacious heist in history." (Daily Mail)

"Packed with suspense." (Good Book Guide)

From the Inside Flap

The press called it 'the heist of the Millennium' and 'a plot worthy of James Bond'. In 2000, a gang of villains from the South East of England hatched an audacious plan to steal the world's largest perfect diamond from the Millennium Dome and make their getaway by speedboat up the River Thames. If they had succeeded, it would have made the spoils of the Great Train Robbery and Brinks Mat look like loose change. The gang nearly had it all. They came within a whisker of unimaginable wealth, but it was snatched from under them by one of the most daring police operations ever. Here, for the first time, is the full thrilling story of the robbery - as told by the detective who foiled their plans. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This is a waste of money and time. The only thing this book does is perpetuate the myth of John Shatford and his collosal ego. The spotlight is on shatford and the police and how fantastic they are but misses the point. Shatford, if you are reading this, you are the biggest thief because you are taking money from royalties on a book that is selling under false pretences. Its not about the robbery but about you. This should be under autobiography. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY...BUY DIAMOND GEEZERS INSTEAD> That book is about the robbery and the gang. This is a book that, once you put it down, you will never pick up again. Buy bent coppers if you want to read about the police...not this pile of rubbish.

Fantastic, well written, gripping book that I could not put down.
Nicely put together with the build up and background prior to the exciting main raid.
Easy to read, very interesting and not at all dramatised.
I was recommended this book by a work colleague and I too, would recommend to anyone.

It's always with anticipation that I pick up a new book to read especially in the "real crime" category. "Dome Raiders" is certainly a book that immediately gripped this reader from beginning to end. The book moves along at a fast pace and I couldn't put it down. I had to reminding myself that I was reading about real life events and that it wasn't a fictional action packed adventure. After the media attention back in November 2000 when the Dome robbers and the Flying Squad's exploits became known worldwide, I knew the ending of the story but not the beginning. This book tells all, and it was at times with nail biting suspense that I read the detailed description of the months of hard work and covert operations leading to the eventual capture of the Dome robbers. This suspense was relieved by intermittent interspersions of humour to remind me that these policemen are human beings and not fictional. Even knowing the end of the story in advance I still read the book wondering what on earth was going to happen next. I thoroughly recommend "Dome Raiders" as an entertaining and enlightening read.
