Description - Great Train Robbery Confidential: The Cop and the Robber Follow New Lines of Enquiry by Graham Satchwell
In 1981, Detective Inspector Satchwell was the officer in charge of the case against Train Robber Tom Wisbey, and 20 others. The case involved, like the Great Train Robbery, massive thefts from mail trains. Thirty years later their paths crossed again and an unlikely collaboration to reveal the truth about the Great Train Robbery began. This new study reassesses the known facts about one of most infamous crimes in modern history with the uniquely qualified insight of an experienced railway detective, presenting new theories alongside compelling evidence. This is an important, and perhaps final, opportunity to reverse the lies and half-truths that are increasingly becoming accepted as known facts in the story of the Great Train Robbery of 1963. AUTHOR: Graham Satchwell served in every rank of CID within the British Transport Police (1978-1999). For many years he was the detective superintendent, Britain's most senior railway detective. During his service he was awarded numerous commendations by crown court judges, chief constables, and others. He has written two books, 'An Inspector Recalls' for The History Press, and 'A Sick Business Counterfeit Medicines & Organised Crime'. He lives in Hampshire. 12 b/w illustrations
