Bertie Kidd is known as one of the countries most infamous career criminals. He was released in May 2018 after completing a 21 year jail term after a bungled chemical factory robbery he did in his sixties. His parole finished on the 25th August 2019 which enabled the publishing of his memoirs.

The Audacious Kidd is the first of a three book trilogy based on his life story as told to author Simon Griffin.
