This real-life "Ocean's Eleven" provides a thrilling in-depth study detailing the -fiction heist of the century. It is a combination of diamond history, journalistic reportage and riveting true-crime story. The authors uncover how a group of thieves stole over $108 million dollars worth of diamonds! On February 15, 2003, a group of thieves broke into an allegedly airtight vault in the international diamond capital of Antwerp, Belgium and made off with over $108 million dollars worth of diamonds and other valuables. They did so without tripping an alarm or injuring a single guard in the process. Although the crime was perfect, the getaway was not. The police zeroed in on a band of professional thieves fronted by Leonardo Notarbartolo, a dapper Italian who had rented an office in the Diamond Center and clandestinely cased its vault for over two years. The 'who' of the crime had been answered, but the 'how' remained largely a mystery. Scott Andrew Selby and Greg Campbell undertook a global goose chase to uncover the true story behind the daring heist!

Reading it," " you realize that sometimes reality can be more fantastic than most action films."--Douglas Preston and Mario Spezi, "New York Times "bestselling authors of "The Monster of Florence" "The first 'must-be-read-with-popcorn' book ever. Selby and Campbell's propulsive and cinematic narrative shimmers with truth, hubris and knowing details. I loved it."--Gregg Olsen, "New York"" Times "bestselling author of "Starvation"" Heights" "That real life often outdoes fiction is no longer surprising, but when a true story is brilliantly told, it's a discovery worth shouting about.
