Wensley Clarkson is one of Britain’s most knowledgeable authors when it comes to the underworld. He's written numerous true-crime books, including biographies of Brink’s-Mat defendant Kenneth Noye, ex-Great Train Robber Charlie Wilson and legendary south London criminal Jimmy Moody. Clarkson's much acclaimed book on Noye was one of the ten best selling true crime titles of the 1990s. A Ch.5 documentary based on his recent best seller The Curse of Brink’s-Mat will be televised later this year.
Unlike most other authors, I provide a full 'site experience' for my readers and followers, so take your time viewing all these pages. There's plenty to see on them and I update the pages on a regular basis.
My TV appearances and documentaries are featured on various sections. They include an interview with my old workmate PIERS MORGAN. There are FREE DOWNLOADS of full-length documentaries on TV/MEDIA as well as a FREE EBOOK.
HATTON GARDEN ROBBERY BOOK DEAL - SEPT 2015
It's created more public interest than any heist for more than 20 years. Now I'm going to reveal the full, inside story of the Hatton Garden Robbery in a book for Quercus Publishing, which will be published immediately after the trials of the suspects, expected later this year. I've already tracked down some of the main characters and now I'm examining the backgrounds of the robbers themselves as well as the notorious gangsters who helped finance this extraordinary crime.

My full background story is on BIOGRAPHY.
Meanwhile, here's a brief outline of who I am:
My books have been published across the world and sold more than one and a half million copies. I've also written movie screenplays and worked on numerous TV documentaries in the UK, US and Spain.
I first covered crime as a national newspaper reporter thirty-five years ago. My numerous true-crime books include biographies of notorious criminals in the UK, Spain and US.
My knowledge is based on my ability to speak directly to many of these characters. I've built these underworld contacts up over many years.
I currently have a number of TV documentary projects in development, as well as two new books that have been published this year.
My recent book 'The Curse of Brink's-Mat' reveals how numerous villains and policemen have been killed in the name of that heist over the past 30 years. Even today, police admit that at least £10m worth of the gold stolen during the 1983 robbery is still unsmelted and is believed to have been hidden in underground locations across the south east of England.
A TV movie about master criminal and M25 killer Kenneth Noye is also in the works…he is expected to be released from prison next year...
