An Attempted Crimestory

Here is the problem I have with this book. These guys were caught before they had a diamond in their hand. Read carefully the description and you will see the crime doesn't occur, there are a couple hundred of police waiting on them at the site of the intended crime.
There is no exciting chase, no amazing detective work, none of the elements you want in a crime story. The crime was unsuccessful and the "geezers" were arrested.
The whole book is about the guys they caught, the justice system, the cops, and a lot of other almost irrelvant discussion. I repeat, this is the story about an attempted crime by below average intellect criminals.

Interesting True Crime story

I was hesitant to download this because there weren't any reviews- but I took the plunge and it was worthwhile. It's an interesting look into the criminal world and the politics of law enforcement. Narration and pacing was excellent, definitely recommend.
