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!)

Funny and tragic

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

Informative and fun

As a 40 year old Canadian, I had never heard of any of these before. Was a very enjoyable listening experience. Not overly long, but not leaving out important details to keep the episodes fairly short. Narration was very well done. Would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in true crime stories.
