Publisher's Summary

True North Heists tells the tales of some of the most outlandish capers ever committed on Canadian soil. Acting legend Colm Feore (Bon Cop Bad Cop, Trudeau) dramatically weaves together “in the moment” storytelling with interviews with those with deep knowledge of the heists themselves, including law enforcement officers, writers and the criminals themselves. All capped off with a soundscape designed to keep the listener on the edge of their seat.

Absolutely fantastic!

I am new to audio books, and this was my first listen/read. Unbelievable! The characters jump off the page, the stories are exciting and engaging. Colm Feore is da bomb for a narrator, and the authors/narrators to support each story Colm reads are excellent. I have recommended this to my family and friends because it is just too Canadian! Enjoy!

Fantastic narration!

A delightful peek into Canada's criminal capers! Colm Feore radiates his signature twinkle-eyed charm as he takes us through our nation's most (in)famous heists. (Bonus: Now I finally know how to pronounce Feore's name properly!)

Great Entertainment - Left me craving for more!

This collection of ten historically-based heists by such diverse characters that their personalities and feats will remain with me for some time. Expertly crafted stories by Andrew Kaufman and superb narration by Colm Feore.

Funny and tragic

The life of one of the men was truly tragic. No one would want to walk in his shoes.

True-ly enjoyable

I thoroughly enjoyed the 10 episode True North Heists series. Colm Feore wonderfully narrates Andrew Kaufman's words. Each episode is wonderfully crafted with interviews of the characters and authors. I'm looking forward to episodes 11-20 hopefully soon! I'm certain you will binge this series as I did after just one episode.

About time!

Great that we’re finally getting a little more Canadian content on audible. These stories are super engaging and have me hooked. I’ve been missing Colm Feore’s amazing narration since Museum Secrets on TV ended, and throwing his talents into these short tales is the perfect encore. Really fun listen.

Fascinating tales of Canadian thieves

There's a lot of Canadian heists history that's well narrated by Feore and a multitude of guests. Though each story is relatively short, they were exciting and educational. What a listening pleasure.
