More About The Great Pearl Heist by Molly Caldwell Crosby
 
 
 
Overview
"London, 1913." An exquisite strand of pale pink pearls, worth more than the Hope Diamond, has been bought by a Hatton Garden broker, capturing the attention of both jewelers and thieves. In transit to London from Paris, the necklace vanishes without a trace.
Joseph Grizzard, "the King of Fences," is the leader of a vast gang of thieves in London's East End. Having risen from the deadly streets to become a wealthy family man, Grizzard still cannot resist the sport of crime, and the pearl necklace proves an irresistible challenge.
Inspector Alfred Ward has joined the brand-new division of the Metropolitan Police known as "detectives." Having caught some of the great murderers of Victorian London, Ward is now charged with finding the missing pearls and the thief who stole them.
In the spirit of "The Great Train Robbery," this is the true story of a psychological cat-and-mouse game. Thoroughly researched and compellingly colorful, "The Great Pearl Heist" is a gripping narrative account of this little-known, yet extraordinary crime.
