Product description

About the Author

I spent most of my early years working as a DJ on pirate radio ships off the coast of the UK before joining Radio Luxembourg in 1971. I spent eleven glorious years in that small but beautiful Principality. It's where I met my wife, Pierrette.

They say you should write what you know. I know nothing about bank robberies, but I love action adventure stories, particularly if they have strong characters and a sardonic sense of humor.

BanGk! is a crime caper and a natural bedfellow to great stories like The Italian Job, Oceans 11 and Mission Impossible.

Three first-time bank robbers come up with a crazy plan to steal gold bullion from the Bank of England. An international crime syndicate sees the potential and come on board. Inside help is blackmailed into cooperating. Treachery and duplicity are their silent partners.

It's a fun and constantly surprising crime caper which sprung from an idea I had for a movie. I was writing a short synopsis to pitch to producers but it just kept growing. I stopped and regrouped. It was obvious it needed to be turned into a full blown story.

I began writing full-time in September and the final version was ready by April the following year. Fast, yes. But I had already got the whole story in my head. Everything. All the characters, sub plots and misdirection. Most importantly, the con itself, which is original and outlandish. But how do you sell such an extraordinary plot to the book reading public?

You only have to look at The Italian Job, The Thomas Crown Affair, Oceans 11, 12 or 13 or any number of caper / heist movies to understand that it's all about suspension of disbelief. Every story or movie requires us to do that to some extent. The reader trusts you to take them on an adventure and land them safely at the other end, satisfied with the journey.

The result is a tense, wild ride on a runaway train, barely clinging to the tracks. A huge confidence trick, the search for retribution and the quest for a massive pay-day.

BanGk! is the first in the James Stack series.
