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.

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.

Great Canadian stories!!

I knew some of the stories already but was still interesting to hear it a different take on it. Great narrating by Colm Feore!! I hope they do another series some day.

perfect series

I enjoy listening to true crimes, but I don’t want gruesome details. These stories are both interesting & entertaining. The narrator is great, too! The whole series is worth a listen.

Great Fun!!

I had a lot of fun listening to this story about a family man with chutzpah who, finding life just a little too boring, decides to become a bank robber! Fun, fun, fun with perfect narration by Colm Feore. Try it, you won’t be disappointed ☺️.

Fun and Entertaining Stories of Canadian Heists

This was a fun and entertaining listen. Several notorious Canadian masterminds are profiled along with their crimes. Fantastic narration from Colm Feore and people involved in the cases, including relatives are interviewed when available. The artistic way many pulled off their heists definitely livens up the listen. Highly recommended and I hope they do more. I remember the old show Masterminds that used to run on the old Court TV, This reminds me of it. Great series and a fun listen.
