In 1966, international conman Robert Gardner brought a highly skilled crew of grifters to New Zealand to pull off the biggest swindle. This was executed with professional precision, until two young girls played detective and stumbled upon a crucial mistake, but was it too late? Gardner skipped the country and was successful in eluding the FBI, Interpol, Canadian Mounties and Scotland Yard. This is the full story of the elaborate scam which uncovered collusion with a high powered organised crime group- the corrupt Sydney CIB, and how three Auckland Detectives never gave up, playing cat and mouse around the world for two years to bring the offenders to justice.
