Summary
Late in 1873, London was gripped by the astonishing story emerging from the highest court in the land, where four American conmen were on trial for attempting the greatest financial scam the world had ever seen. Their leader, Austin Bidwell, had hatched a plan of devilish ingenuity which were it not for one tiny stroke of bad luck would have ended with him walking out of the Bank of England with a million pounds in cash - the equivalent of £85 million today - a heist which would have plunged London into financial meltdown and put his name alongside the legends of criminal history. Nicholas Booth tells the extraordinary true story of Bidwell and his gang
