Heist Broker takes place between the 1993 attempted bombing of the World
Trade Center, and September 11th 2001. It is the story of Nicky Cessario,
the very determined South Brooklyn fella who masterminded the 1998 bank
robbery in the most fortiﬁed building in the free world; the North Tower of the
World Trade Center. A creature of wide parameters, Nicky had led a group of
ofﬁce workers out of the bombed North Tower in 1993. But 1998 saw the dark
side of Nicky’s capacities.
This is a ﬁction story based directly on actual events, friendships, and the eternal jabber vine that runs through South Brooklyn with the seeping persistence
of the Gowanus Canal. It is not based on newspaper or police archives or public records. It was not deeply researched on-line. It is the product of walking
talking primary source human material.
