The lowdown on the Tonbridge heist

<p>Andrew Gordon at Simon&amp;Schuster is teaming up again with author Howard Sounes on Heist, the story of the 2005 Tonbridge Securitas raid in which a gang stole more than &#163;53m.

Gordon and Sounes worked together previously on Fred&amp;Rose, when Gordon was at Little,Brown. The new book will be "full of drama, weirdness and with a rich undercurrent of farce".

S&S has UK and Commonwealth rights (inc serial) through Gordon Wise at Curtis Brown, and will publish "as soon as is legally feasible, given the trial timetable, in 2007".</p>
