Joan Hannington - aka "the Godmother" - is one of the most notorious figures in London's criminal underworld. After a rough, loveless childhood and a disastrous first marriage - during which she was first introduced into a life of crime - Joan married professional thief Boisie Hannington, and the couple embarked on a journey to become Britain's most successful diamond thieves. Literally millions of pounds passed through their hands and Joan and Boisie became members of the criminal elite, but tragedy was soon to strike at the heart of their outrageous lifestyle.
