Born into poverty in a Glasgow tenement, James Crosbie went on to become Scotland's most notorious bank robber, the man behind the biggest heist in the country's history. Fearless, adventurous, and mischievous, he saw success as a businessman and traveler, but the lure of the next great job always proved too strong, particularly when on one occasion he was mistakenly given bail following a serious robbery. Eccentric and high-spirited, Crosbie became famous for escaping the scene of his crimes on a bicycle. But he didn't always get away free and has spent much of his life behind bars. Determined, persistent, witty, and charismatic, James Crosbie is one of Scotland's most charming robbers.
