One Last Job: the extraordinary life story of Brian Reader, Britain’s most prolific thief

Our Review


£ 8.99

The Hatton Garden raid of 2015 has already entered folklore. This book cuts through the myth to reveal the true-life story of its elderly mastermind, Brian Reader.

Gang insiders, family, friends and detectives talk for the first time about Reader’s six-decade career, from mixing with the Krays and the cream of the London underworld to an ill-fated collaboration with violent gangster Kenny Noye.

It reveals the Hatton Garden gang’s links to an unsolved gangland murder, bent cops, police supergrasses and an alleged establishment cover-up. The book also includes new details about Basil, dubbed ‘The Ghost’ after he became the only gang member to escape justice.
