47 Rules of Highly Effective Bank Robbers
Troy Cook's first mystery has been nominated for the All Books Reviewers' Choice Award, and deservedly so. It's packed with crime, bloodshed, humor and romance.
Poor Tara Evans has lived a life of crime since she was nine. She and her father, Wyatt, went on a crimespree of bank robberies, governed only by his rules as to how to rob a bank without getting caught. At twenty-two, Tara thinks something is seriously wrong with her father. He's grown more bloodthirsty and enjoys killing people during the robberies. He also has a strange glint in his eye when he looks at her. When Tara meets Max Williams, the son of a small-town sheriff, she thinks it might be time to move on with her life. Unfortunately, her father doesn't agree with her.
Max and Tara flee across the southwest, running from Wyatt, Max's father, the FBI and a couple of stupid crooks. The modern-day Bonnie and Clyde make up their own rules as they go along, rules that might help in their future lives and survival. Only time will tell if romance can conquer two crazed fathers and a deranged FBI agent.
