Agent: Mark Lucas
The late Bruce Reynolds was the man who masterminded the Great Train Robbery – one of the most audacious heists of the twentieth century. After five years on the run, with the Flying Squad in hot pursuit, Bruce paid dearly for his new-found celebrity – he was tried and sentenced to twenty-five years in prison. He was released in 1979, and despite numerous offers, turned his back on his criminal past. His classic memoir, The Autobiography Of A Thief, has never been out of print.
