Ten men were involved in the robbery and the gruesome murder of a gold merchant and his two employees. Stolen from them were 120 bars of pure gold. Nine of them were subsequently found guilty. Seven were hung. Two narrowly escaped the gallows because of their extreme youth. The tenth man, however, escaped death. A fast-paced account that captures the sinister excitement and drama of the plotting, and merciless and savage execution of the victims, by a twisted bunch of felons. Just who betrayed whom?
