On The Brinks By Sam Millar Wynkin de Worde, ?14.99 Frank Shouldice By any standards, Sam Millar has led a remarkable life. Born a Catholic in Belfast in 1955, his adolescence through the Troubles ended with "the dubious distinction of being the first Irish nationalist to appear in front of the infamous non-jury Diplock court". Three years in Long Kesh for belonging to an illegal organisation was followed by a second stint for seven, most of which he spent on the blanket protest. He then emigrated to New York and worked in illicit casinos before teaming up with an associate to rob $7.2 million from the hitherto impregnable Brinks Security operation in Rochester.
