Roll the Dice : A True Saga of Love, Money and Betrayal, Guppy, Darius
2 Guppy, Darius Roll the Dice : A True Saga of Love, Money and Betrayal
London, United Kingdom Blake Publishing 1996 1857821599 / 9781857821598 Hardcover New in New dust jacket 6" x 9 1/2" 
Unread, unblemished. A fascinating look at the inside of Britain's upper-class, smuggling and the world of high finance. Photos of Princess Diana not seen elsewhere. 310 pages plus 16 pages of mostly color photographs. Darius Guppy is a former playboy who hatched an outlandish scheme to defraud the famous Lloyd's of London for three million dollars, nearly got away with it, but got caught and served time in prison. His account of the plot and its aftermath results in a very entertaining book. Darius Guppy was highly intelligent and his best friend was the brother of Princess Diana. Feeling that Lloyd's of London was responsible for his family's misfortune, Guppy concocted an elaborate plan that fooled not only the New York Police Department, but British detectives, as well. It was only after an accomplice betrayed him, three years later, that Guppy was arrested and sent to prison. Roll the Dice, in a plot right out of a detective novel, is a fascinating look at the inside of Britain's upper-class, smuggling and the world of high finance. Darius Guppy is a terrific story-teller, who makes no apologies for his crime. His story was plastered all over the London tabloids as the smart aleck, rich kid who got exactly what he deserved. For the Princess Diana completists, while this book is not about the Princess, it does contain a couple of photographs of the Princess, not available anywhere else.
