It was the largest bank robbery in Australian history. On Sunday, 14 September, 1828, thieves tunnelled through a sewage drain into the vault of Sydney’s Bank of Australia and stole 14,000 pounds in notes and cash – the equivalent of $20 million dollars in today’s currency . . . this meticulously researched and fast-paced history tells the story of the daring Bank of Australia robbery and of the scheming robbers, greedy receivers and unfortunate suspects whose lives were irrevocably changed by this outrageous crime.” pp.viii
