Charlotte, Alex and Barrett attempt to rob the Hatton Garden jeweler. Charlotte’s husband Tony is a former Soldier in need of medical assistance. Once they sell the diamonds, she can take Tony to America. Just as they attempt to rob the Jeweler, two bikers show up, ready to rob the Jeweler as well. It turns in to a battle of steel. When it’s over, the trio take the jewelry and clear off quickly. Eventually they head to Amsterdam and a buyer for the diamonds.

DI Andrew Hill wants to create a national chain of gyms. He’s ready to retire, but decides to take on one more case. The Hatton Garden Jewelry case. Hill notices the crime scene is clean, and the police file is lacking pictures and information. Also, there is no CCTV footage. Hill interviews the local businesses on the road and continues to research the case. The investigation moves at a clip pace and has Hill following the trio of thieves to what seems like a final show down.

James Patterson & Rees Jones successfully deliver a story filled with characters that garner a variety of reactions. Listeners/readers will be blown away by the unexpected ending. Actor Colin Mace delivers a compelling narration in the audio version of Heist. I hope to hear more of him on future Patterson BookShots.
