Amazon Review

Danny King returns with the second instalment in his Crime Diaries series. In The Bank Robber Diaries we're treated to another riot of outrageous, unlawful behaviour as Chris Benson and his unscrupulous gang get themselves into some unthinkable tangles. When Gavin Benson is sent down for 15 years, the onus is on his kid brother Chris to safeguard the family "business". This is never easy when you have a scandalous wife with an insatiable taste for married men; and it's especially hard when your brother's wife--your lonely and sexually frustrated sister-in-law--demands "solace" in the absence of her husband. But Chris's major problem turns out to be his partner in crime, Vince. This unashamedly violent individual (even in bank-robbing terms) demonstrates a complete disregard for the lives of anyone who gets in his way, be they bank managers, passers by or even participants in a paintball battle. Vince is one liability that Chris can do without.

The book is not all about laugh-out-loud comic writing. The Bank Robber Diaries also explores the darker side of criminal activity... and that's a pretty large canvas when hired hit men, murders in the woods and the ever-looming prospect of capture or death are thrown into the equation. Thus King's success in popularising, if not glorifying, his protagonists is brought to an abrupt halt at all the right moments. Danny King is a witty and insightful narrator well in tune with the mind of a criminal, likable or otherwise. The Bank Robber Diaries is by no means a book for the faint hearted but the dark humour, hilarious episodes and gripping action described so well here make for a captivating read. --David Thwaites

  • The Bank Robber Diaries is joint winner of the 2001 Writers' Bursaries


One of the few writers to make me laugh out loud. Danny King's brilliant at making you love characters who essentially are quite bad people (David Baddiel ?It)

s low on morals but big on laughs, so if you can thieve one, by all means go for it! (BBM ?Danny looks set for a long and healthy career going straight... to the top of the best-sellers list? Penthouse ?The Bank Robber Diaries is the best (and funniest) British Crime novel since The Burglar Diaries which was also written by Danny King? Ice)

'Once again the comic genius and hilarious one-liners have you warming to the anti-social protagonists of Chris, Sid and Vince; more cock-ups than hold ups.... a thoroughly un-pc but rewarding novel? BBM 'A second tale of wickedly un-PC caper crime? Publishing News ?Extremely funny? FHM ?The characterisation is - well, superb. All the people in it are believable whether you like them or not, and the reactions of them and the smaller players is extraordinarily well conceived and compellingly written...if you liked The Sweeney and Two Smoking Barrels, you?ll like this?
