Inside the Largest Diamond Heist in History
"Belgian police stared at the chaos inside an impenetrable vault after an auspicious weekend break-in in early 2003. The huge safe in Antwerp's diamond district had been emptied of all but a few precious scraps the thieves couldn't carry. The clock then turns back to follow the steps of Leonardo Notarbartolo, an experienced Italian criminal, as he studies and plans the greatest heist ever carried out. Narrator Don Hagen's deep, sandy voice and meticulous enunciation relate a modern-day ballad of outlaws robbing a bank. Like the crooks' preparations, Hagen's methodical pace allows listeners to enjoy every step of the true crime and its untidy aftermath. Would-be burglars could learn a lot from this audiobook. J.A.H.
