Flawless: Inside the Largest Diamond Heist in History
I really got into the parts that chronicled how the thieves bypassed the vault's security, and enjoyed the analysis of how the building housing a number of gem and jewelry dealers didn't live up to its secure potential. The inside peek at the diamond industry, too, was informative. The writing is a bit repetitive--it's necessary to repeat some details for the reader to recall an important detail, but I thought that sentences and paragraphs came back pretty much wholesale.
Still, if you're interested in an exciting read that goes well beyond petty crime, I recommend this.
