How do you get one of the world's most famous criminals out of his hiding place in Brazil? And once he was out, what would you do with him? And what if the mission provokes an international crisis? "Kidnapping Ronnie" tells the true story of the abduction of the notorious Great Train Robber Ronnie Biggs from Brazil in 1981. It is one of the most spectacular capers in criminal folklore, involving a world famous villain, a group of former soldiers, and the shadowy world of British Intelligence. But who was the mastermind behind the kidnap mission? Speculation has long been rife and many names have been suggested, all powerful figures with the money and the connections to have had the infamous train robber nabbed by such a highly trained team of ex-servicemen. Was the kidnap funded by someone looking to make a quick buck from the massive publicity surrounding the whole affair, or someone who wanted Ronnie Biggs to serve the time he deserved? It was even suggested that the Government may have been behind things from the start...In this remarkable tale of conspiracy, adventure and intrigue, one of the team relives his experience and shares his side of the story for the first time.
It makes for an unforgettable, action-packed read.
