Product description

An Italian cop lies writhing on the ground, the bullets from a Magnum 357 searing into his stomach. Nearby, the owner of the Magnum lies dead, ripped almost in half in the Italian countryside. A well-known Mafia face is spotted at the scene. So ended the life of millionaire gunman Valerio Viccei, a man who lived by the gun and, eventually, died by the gun...Young, brilliant, smooth-talking, glamorous: Valerio had it all. He hit headlines across the world when he got away with [pound]60 million from the Knightsbridge Safe Deposit Centre. It was the biggest robbery in history. It seemed like the perfect crime: all the losers appeared to be hugely wealthy; no one was hurt and many ordinary people marvelled at the daring and nerve of the raiders. Valerio has been labelled a criminal genius, a super-stud and a ruthless gunman. Before he died, he wrote his fascinating memoir. This, in his own words, is the final truth about one of the most talked-about villains of all time.
