(1982)
The True, Outrageous Story of the Plymouth Mail Robbery And How They Got Away with It
A novel by

 
 
Provides a true-life account of the Plymouth mail robbery and of how the criminals got away with more than one and a half million dollars

"[A] tight, well-researched, sometimes funny book about one of the crimes of the century, the motley group that pulled it off, and the assorted characters who tried to catch them. Pseudonyms are used here, but anyone with access to Boston newspaper files can figure out most of the dramatis personae in the ingenious 1962 robbery of a post office van (the feds were saving money on an armored car) heading up from Cape Cod to Boston, packed with $1.5 million in bank deposits from a big summer weekend. Not a shot was fired, the loot was never recovered and, although three people were eventually indicted, no one was convicted of the crime." - Kirkus Review
