Eddie Maher used to spend every day guarding big bags of someone else's cash. He'd always dreamed about the big house and the sporty car, and working for Securicor wasn't getting him anywhere fast. But all that was to change.The siren song of temptation proved too much. So one day 'Fast' Eddie Maher decided it was time to live the dream. He reached out his hand and grabbed the opportunity...in the form of ?1.2million cash in the back of a security van. The cheekiest of heist of all time had taken no longer than a minute.For a man on the run, American was the place to be. No one knew him and no one was looking for him, although that didn't stop him wearing a fake beard and outsize shades to hide his face. Eddie travelled all around the States living the outlaw life for 20 years. Colorado, Florida, Texas; he even married an air hostess in Las Vegas, the City of Sin. The USA was Eddie's playground.But fate is fickle and the easy living just wasn't meant to last. A quick Google search told Eddie's capricious daughter-in-law Jessica King all she needed to know about the strangely wealthy Mr Maher. Give up a wanted fugitive and net a ?100,000 reward? She didn't have to think twice. Eddie was jailed in March 2013 for 5 years, the forfeit for his outrageous roll of the dice.This is the true story of 'Fast' Eddie Maher, the man who dared and almost won.
