The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'The Great Train Robbery':
Reviewer Koos van den Hout wrote:
Michael Crichton diverts from his usual writings of well-researched fiction into the writing of well-researched (mostly) non-fiction with his retelling of one of the biggest stories in the history of Victorian London: The Great Train Robbery.
He tells of all the preparations, and takes the reader along with the criminal mastermind setting up every detail of the robbery, taking the time to build the almost perfect crime. The crime works (as we all know from history) but the thief gets arrested anyway because of someone talking too much.
The style of Crichton, researching every detail and using that in a story without having those details hold up the story works out great in this book.
