Interesting story about a diamond heist

I found the story itself quite fascinating. But the music was annoying and interfered with the flow of the story. The interviews were not scripted ( I think) in which made it interesting at one level but not as entertaining as a well scripted story. Michael Caine himself has a great voice and I think it would’ve been more fun if he just told the story by himself. WITHOUT MUSIC ( except at the fading in and out)

entertaining

Michael Caine's narration makes this an enjoyable listen. The stories are quite different and the final chapter provides a good summary of how to and how not to pull off a heist.

Great story

Great story that is very interesting. However music has been inserted under the talking. It is very distracting. Why would music be a good idea while the narrator is reading. Horrible idea! If I had paid money/Credit for this I would ask for my money back!!

If you love true crime, you’ll love this

Narrated amazingly by Michael Caine and the perfect listen for those days when you want something to bite into to solve boredom without needing to start a 10+ hour book. Reminds me a lot of a Netflix documentary. Second time listening through this episode and I catch new things here and there. Definitely worth a listen or two.

Top notch audible

Like one reviewer said...I could listen to Michael Caine read the ingredients off a cereal box! Mix in music and interviews with detectives, writers and crooks and it was really entertaining!
