A new audio series called Heist With Michael Caine is set to premiere on Audible soon. Hosted by Academy Award winner Michael Caine (The Italian Job, The Quiet American, Batman Begins) this gripping, richly detailed, six-part series tells the stories of remarkable heists and extraordinary robberies from around the world – as remembered by the masterminds, detectives, victims, journalists, and witnesses that lived through them.
From the largest bank burglary in American history to the world’s most audacious book heist, Heist With Michael Caine travels to America, Australia, Stockholm, Antwerp, and everywhere in-between to tell true stories that have inspired some of Hollywood’s most-famous heist films.
