LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2014) - Amil Dinsio, described by the FBI as "America's greatest bank burglar," recently published "Inside the Vault" (, the story of one of the most daring and meticulously planned heists in U.S. history.

In a small, non-descript bank perched on a hill in the quiet town of Laguna Niguel in Orange County, Calif., millions of illegally obtained dollars sat in the vault of America's most infamous president -- Richard Nixon.

Just a few years before Nixon became the only president in U.S. history to resign office, Dinsio and his team of brothers and friends broke into the United California Bank in April 1972. They penetrated the building's thick steel-reinforced walls, circumvented multiple alarms, and dropped down into the state-of-the-art vault, where they emptied hundreds of safe deposit boxes over the course of three nights.

"It's true -- I'm the guy who led the heist, but my crew and I weren't the only law-breakers," says Dinsio, adding that FBI agents and the U.S. attorneys general committed theft and perjury and falsified evidence in their efforts to lock him away for seven years.

"The government wasn't smart enough to catch me honestly. They had to lie, steal, and plant evidence to convict me."

Dinsio and his crew from Youngstown, Ohio pulled off the burglary, resulting in a score of more than $12 million dollars -- the biggest bank vault burglary in U.S. history.

"I felt like I was sitting in the author's living room while he told me the story, like a child sitting on the floor listening to her dad talk about his glory days," writes Amazon reviewer D Meadows, who gave the book five stars. "I read the book in about 3 hours. I could not put it down! It is a great and easy read with a natural flow to the story...."

About Amil Dinsio

Amil Dinsio, mastermind of the greatest bank burglary in U.S. history, had committed scores of bank burglaries before stealing $12 million from President Richard Nixon in 1972. Because the law was unable to catch him, he says officials committed criminal acts such as perjury, falsification and burglary in order to secure a criminal conviction. "Inside the Vault" is his first book and the first insider revelation of the details behind the history-making heist.
