About This Book

In 1981, Detective Inspector Satchwell was the officer in charge of the case against Train Robber Tom Wisbey, and 20 others. The case involved, like the Great Train Robbery, massive thefts from mail trains. Thirty years later their paths crossed again and an unlikely collaboration to reveal the truth about the Great Train Robbery began. This new study reassesses the known facts about one of most infamous crimes in modern history with the uniquely qualified insight of an experienced railway detective, presenting new theories alongside compelling evidence. This is an important, and perhaps final, opportunity to reverse the lies and half-truths that are increasingly becoming accepted as known facts in the story of the Great Train Robbery of 1963.
