Fantastic, wraps you up and carries you along

A great listen. Atmospheric, funny and exciting. I can’t wait to listen to them all. Although maybe they would have a better time figuring out “who done it” if whenever they refer to a unknown member of the gang they didn’t call them a he...although great for the female criminal fraternity to be unexamined!

Super fascinating little dive into heists

Great little series told by the fantastic Michael Caine. Really interesting to hear about some of the world's most famous heists and robberies, just a pity there isn't more episodes.

Interesting but drawn out

Michael Caine is a great narrator but this collection of stories is just not not worth wasting his talent on. I found the presentation annoying, for the continual interruptions of music (totally unnecessary), often louder than the voices and irritating to the ears, The stories were drawn out too much by the introduction of witnesses retelling their experiences. I gave up on it after a while.

Riveting

Michael Caine brilliantly tells the story of various heists. From the first episode, the story comes to life and we are introduced to the employees who find the evidence of robbery, the police and investigators, and also the perpetrators. This is riveting stuff, well read, written and produced.

Highly recommended.

Badly Written

Could have been great. Unfortunately really badly written. There could have been a better selection of heists covered.

Fascinating

So very interesting to hear about some of the most famous heists in the world, especially as told by the robbers themselves. How they were executed and why they were caught....but not always with the money !! Micheal Cain was the perfect narrator 😊

Ruined by music track

As will all many of these 'free listens' this was ruined by the poor quality and unnecessarily loud music track. I gave up very early on.
