Summary:

Over Easter weekend 2015, a motley crew of six English thieves, several in their sixties and seventies, couldn't resist coming out of retirement for one last career-topping heist. Their target: the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit, in the heart of London's medieval diamond district. 'The Firm' included Brian Reader, ringleader and legend in his own mind; Terry Perkins, a tough-as-nails career criminal but also a frail diabetic; Danny Jones, a fitness freak, crime enthusiast, and fabulist; Carl Wood, an extra pair of hands, and definitely more brawn than brains; John 'Kenny' Collins, getaway driver, prone to falling asleep on the job; and the mysterious Basil, a red-wigged associate who has only now been identified.

Perhaps not the smoothest of criminals-one took a public bus to the scene of the crime; another read Forensics for Dummies in hopes that he would learn how to avoid getting caught-they planned the job over fish and chips at their favorite pubs. They were cantankerous and coarse, dubbed the 'Bad Grandpas' by British tabloids, and were often as likely to complain about one another as the current state of the country. Still, these analog thieves in a digital age managed to disable a high-security alarm system and walk away with a stunning haul of at least $19 million in jewels, gold, diamonds, family heirlooms, and cash.

    Clearly narrated for illiterate six year old Americans who are seemingly completely innumerate. Utterly patronising. If you didn’t know how much a million pounds converts to in USD at the beginning of the book you’ll be completely conversant by the end of it....... if you can stomach it to the end.
