THE PIERRE HOTEL AFFAIR: In 1972, eight astute bandits took under siege the famed Pierre Hotel and cleverly managed to disarm the security staff so to plunder $28,000,000 from its guests’ safe deposit boxes. At that time, $28,000,000 would equate to a present value of $265,000,000. According to retired FBI Agent John Simmons, Nick ‘the Cat’ Sacco was the most wanted jewel thief in the country, if not the world. It was a brazen escapade of epic proportion that entranced the media and amused the whole nation.

In collaboration with Sacco, the sole surviving pirate of the headline-dominating Pierre escapade, Daniel Simone authored The Pierre Hotel Affair, an unprecedented account and never-before-publicized facts provided and detailed by one of the perpetrators of the Pierre heist. With life-like vividness, Simone reenacts Sacco’s version of the robbery and its murderous aftermath in a fast-reeling, dramatic style, floating in endless suspense. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Daniel Simone, born in New York City, is an American author who specializes in writing about sensational crimes in collaboration with one of the perpetrators or investigators of the actual event. He specializes in the narrative non-fiction genre, a stylistic fashion of crafting a true story in the form of a novel, coloring the theme with character dialogues, and vivid scenes dramatized with action and suspense. These elements enliven a story, heightening the intrigue and entertainment of the readers. Simone co-wrote with Henry Hill The Lufthansa Heist. In early 2015, Simone and a collaborator completed a revelatory, and quite explosive, project about the Charles Manson murder convictions, a forthcoming book exposing never-before-told facts. Simone has also published approximately 130 feature stories in several print publications. His new book titled The Pierre Hotel Affair is now available.
