Product description

Fiver!: The Counterfeiting Crime of the Century

Published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson - 1981, First Edition

Hardcover book with dust jacket in good condition. Slightly aged jacket with dust smudges on the back, but no tears or major direct damage. Hard cover clean and free of major damage. Fore edges a little aged and marked by what seems like 2 small droplets of coffee. Other than that, internal pages clean and intact.

This is the true story of how a massive and unprecedented counterfeiting plot was uncovered in the seventies. The man known as the "Magician", a genius at forging bank notes, had successfully evaded Scotland Yard and caused havoc in the Bank of England until by extraordinary coincidence an American businessman visiting London, Mark Yarry, became entangled in the case, and - with young detective constable James Goldie - took on the criminal underworld almost single-handed in an attempt to expose the brilliant and elusive forger.

A chronicle of real events more exciting than any fictional crime story.
