Flawless by Scott Andrew Selby


The fun of participating in reading challenges is discovering  exciting new books.  I was challenged to read a book having to do with diamonds, so I selected a non-fiction work about a jewel heist.

In 2003, a group of Italian thieves broke into a secure vault in Antwerp’s Diamond District, and stole what could be valued at $500 million in jewels, precious metals and cash.  Author Scott Andrew Selby presents a work of narrative non-fiction, outlining the impressive details of the robbery and how law enforcement were able to track down the culprits.  The book is well-written, well-researched, and exciting.  I found myself gripped by the narrative, curious as to what would happen next.  In spite of the fact that the perpetrators were caught, the loot was never recovered.  I highly recommend this one!
