Bex and Ollie are a couple of small-time burglars. They scratch a living robbing shops, burgling factories and emptying offices around the back-water town of Tatley. Bex is the brains, Ollie drives the van. The lads don't have it all their own way though; 'Weasel' of CID is only one faltering step behind them, the local criminal competition will do anything to stitch them up and the loves of their lives are wondering what the hell they've done to deserve them. Things are about to finally catch up with Bex and Ollie. Following on from The Burglar Diaries and based on the BBC comedy series Thieves Like Us, narrator Bex takes us on another tour of Tatley's rooftops and drainpipes, and through lock-ups, cock-ups and jobs as he recounts More Burglar Diaries.
