Crossing the Line Zusammenfassung

Crossing the Line: The Autobiography of a Thief Bruce Reynolds

August 8th 1963; a railway track in Buckinghamshire. The moon shines clearly over Bruce Reynolds and 16 other men robbing a mail train of its sacks of money. The Great Train Robbery has entered British folklore as one of the most audacious crimes of the 20th century. The haul was #2,631,684 - the equivalent in 2002, #26 million. Bruce Reynolds, the leader of the gang, was sentenced to 25 years in prison in 1969 for his role in the robbery - he was released in 1978. This title takes Reynolds' story from inner London to Cannes, Rio de Janeiro and the Costa del Sol. His adventurous nature led to a successful career in crime, working his way up from minor league burglaries to the biggest haul of all. The planning, execution and consequences of the Great Train Robbery are covered plus the toll that life on the run took on him and his family. This edition brings Reynolds' story up-to-date to cover the fates of the rest of the gang, plus his pivotal role in Ronnie Biggs' return to the UK is also revealed along with his reaction to the deaths of Buster Edwards, Roy James and "Taters" Chatham.

Crossing the Line Bewertungen

'Exceptional... elegantly written' Jake Arnott, Time Out; 'His story stands apart... skilful enough to capture both the immediate excitement of crime and the dull price it so often extracts' The Times; 'Far superior in style and narrative to the standard self-serving criminal memoir' Guardian; 'Amazes and immorally amuses with his high-living, anti-establishment career' Daily Mail

Über Bruce Reynolds

Bruce Reynolds was the leader of the gang behind the notorious Great Train Robbery in 1963. His criminal career began shortly after leaving school in 1946, with minor crimes soon graduating to running a top-class firm. Although they committed a succession of lucrative, high-profile robberies, it wasn't enough, and Reynolds hatched his most ambitious plan yet. Sentenced to 25 years in jail in 1969, he was released early in 1978, leaving his life of crime behind.
