Product Description

Bob Heggie is a banker at the end of a dead end career. He hates his job, his boss, his life. His wife has left him. He hardly knows his kids and his closest friend is a down and out newspaper seller and they're not really close. In the early mornings he wanders the moors of Northern England with a pair of dogs he doesn't like, listening to Bob Dylan sing about a great bank robbery on his iPod. The Jack of Hearts in that song is the kind of man Bob imagines himself to be, but he knows he'll always be just plain old boring Bob Heggie Then one morning he is nearly killed in an armed robbery and he starts to think. If he were to steal the bank's money, he'd come up with a better way. But would he survive to spend his ill gotten gains?

More About the Author

I'm from Newcastle upon Tyne in and I became a writer by accident... honestly! I have no formal writing qualifications and certainly nothing like a University or College education. I was on a long flight several years ago and I was bored, so I opened up my laptop and began to type. I'd had a strange dream the night before and when I woke I thought my dream would make a great thriller. I took to it like a duck to water and by the time the plane was coming into land I'd finished a 5000 word chapter. As I climbed down the aircraft steps I made myself a promise that I'd finish the book and I did. The book was called The Jack of Hearts and incredibly it was published by a small publisher in Oregon. I'm the author of three crime fiction novels and more than a dozen ghost-written books. I also have three books heading for the publishers next year. I have written two screenplays and was assistant screen writer on Do The Birds Still Sing In Hell? which was film optioned in 2012. The movie pre-production starts next month. I am represented by The Diane Banks Agency and my publicist is Paul Gough of Goffy Media.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first outing for Bob Heggie 18 May 2007
I came to this book backwards and read the sequel, 'A million would be nice.' first. As a result I had to read the debut. I was not disappointed. Thank you amazon for the flag, sorry I read them the wrong way round but it gave me the excuse to re-read the second book something I strongly urge everyone to do. Thanks Mr. Scott, thank you for Bob Heggie, long may he flourish and did someone really get away with the robbery, I would love to know. You tell me fellow readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Set a day aside for reading this book! 8 Feb 2006
Once I got stuck into "Jack of Hearts" I was intrigued by the two main characters and the plot and could not put the book down until I had finished it - in one day! A really well written novel with a highly believable plot which set the heart racing at times !! I would highly recommned this book and am already looking forward to the next book by Ken Scott!

I got stuck into this book last Saturday morning and could not put it down until I had finished it! A brilliant read, really well written with an excellent plot - highly believable! I am already looking forward to the next book from Ken Scott - if its anything like Jack of Hearts it will be another brilliant read!

We can all empathise with Bog Heggie. He's just the average nice guy on the street and he deserves a break. But often the breaks don't happen unless we help them along a bit. Bob Heggie turns his life robbing a bank. Okay so perhaps it's a bit unusual for the average nice guy, and maybe not a strategy that should be recommended. But the character of Bob Heggie is so well drawn that you empathise completely. You are with him the whole way and you really want him to win.

This thriller has you on the edge of your seat, suspense and action all the way, a terrific read.
