Product description

Review

Mind numbing suspense - Scotty really delivers! -- Jack Stewart, author Scorpion

Revenge, love, sex, violence and intrigue, this book has it all. A real page turner! -- Trevor Dalton, author The Vampire Sarah

From the Publisher

This is British writer Ken Scott’s debut novel with Bootleg Press and we are happy to have him aboard. JACK OF HEARTS is a thriller we are proud of. A year in the writing, longer in the second draft, but the story was worth the wait, worth the effort.

Newcastle Banker Bob Heggie lives alone in a barely furnished flat. His wife has thrown him over for another man and taken the children he loves. His boss treats him like a dog, often humiliating him in front of the other employees.

Then he buys a motorcycle, meets a younger woman and is almost killed during a daring, daylight bank robbery. The motorcycle, a Harley Sportster, gives him confidence, the girl confuses him and the robbery changes him.

While walking the moors in the early morning, listening to Bob Dylan sing about the Jack of Hearts on his iPod, he devises a scheme, a grand plan, to get even with the bank and the boss he loathes.

Give this story a try, we think you’ll like it. Well, we hope you do. Mr. Scott is busy working on the sequel and we hope, if you try this one, that you’ll come back for that.

Best regards,

Bootleg Press

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.

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!

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 around...by 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.

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!
