Summary
"In the summer of 1873, four American forgers went on trial at the Old Bailey--London's iconic law court--for the greatest fraud the world had ever seen. The attempted crime: stealing five million dollars from the Bank of England from under the noses of its unsuspecting officials. [In this book], Booth tells the extraordinary true story of the forgers' earliest escapades in Chicago, Louisville, and Manhattan, culminating with the heist at the world's leading financial institution"--Amazon.com
