But what if that shake up call comes sooner than you expected and gives you little time to get their future covered? What if, like the majority of the population you do not have a lifetime of funds to leave, especially when your child has disabilities? A child who will never be able to earn their own living and the cost of having them cared for never reduces. Your options aren't vast.
This is the crux of the book. A desperate dying man, driven to desperate measures. Now, I was expecting this book to be a mixture of both the heist and of protagonist Adam's life, with son Jake. I was wrong and somewhat surprised, but not disappointed. Apart from a few scenes at the beginning, which are essential, the novel doesn't leave the boundaries of the bank robbery. And it works brilliantly.
The author keeps the reader in close so the intensity of the situation is never lost. Every character involved in the robbery has their own agenda and Savile has cleverly written on so many levels it manages to capture beautifully the dark side of human nature; when an opportunity for revenge for a life long grudge materialises will you take it? Can money really buy silence? If one descents from the pack should they be sacrificed? It sets your mind thinking about a whole host of moral dilemma's.Read more ›
