Great Train Robbery Confidential : The Cop and the Robber Follow New Lines of Enquiry Paperback / softback
IN 1981, Detective Inspector Satchwell was the officer in charge of the case against Train Robber Tom Wisbey and twenty others.
The case involved massive thefts from mail trains - similar to the Great Train Robbery of 1963 where GBP2.6 million was taken and only GBP400,000 ever recovered. Thirty years later their paths crossed again and an unlikely partnership was formed, with the aim of revealing the truth about the Great Train Robbery. This book reassesses the known facts about one of the most infamous crimes in modern history from the uniquely qualified insight of an experienced railway detective, presenting new theories alongside compelling evidence and correcting the widely accepted lies and half-truths surrounding this story.
