  • Summary

  • Sir Michael Caine - perhaps best known as gang leader Charlie Croker in 60s crime caper The Italian Job - tells the stories of remarkable heists and extraordinary robberies from around the world, as remembered by the masterminds, detectives, victims, journalists and witnesses that lived through them.

    For more than 60 years, Caine has played thieves, criminals, gangsters and the detectives trying to catch them. But there’s Hollywood and then there’s real life... and that’s when things get really interesting.

    From the largest bank burglary in American history, to the world’s most audacious book heist, Heist with Michael Caine travels to America, Australia, Stockholm, Antwerp and everywhere in-between to tell true stories behind the world’s most daring heists.

    A Somethin’ Else production for Audible Originals.

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!

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.

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

Michael Caine narration was excellent. The stories of these hugely extravagant heists are curiously interesting because how the thieves think about the ‘complications’ surrounding the ‘goal’.
