A fresh, fast-paced cocktail of a heist, a good cause and some seriously unexpected consequences…
Jackson Rich is an unlucky man – he’s lost his job, his house and it looks like he’s going to lose the love of his life. To buy his terminally ill wife Candice more time, he’ll try just about anything. Including robbing a bank, on the one day of the year everything shuts down: Melbourne Cup day.
To do it, Jack calls in a promise from his old gang. It’s been a long time since they were all together, but they’d do anything for him – at least that’s what he’s banking on. Nothing could possibly go wrong. Until a couple of kids overhear Jack and his gang planning the robbery.
Even after thirty-odd years as a cop, Detective Steel has never been presented with a scenario like this, but he has to act upon the tip-off he’s been given. Somewhere in Brisbane, sometime during the running of the 1992 Melbourne Cup, a bank is going to be robbed. But to catch the thieves, Steel must let the heist happen. He’s about to make the quickest bust in history. What could go wrong?
What AusRom Today thought:
Talbot always delivers on fast paced, high action adventure romance and Double Take is no exception. From the opening chapter there’s an element of immediacy that paces the story and maintains throughout.
The desperation facing the lead character is palpable throughout and puts the reader in a position where not only do you understand why he’s acting criminally, but you feel empathy for him and becoming almost hopeful for his success.
An engaging and entertaining read that offers a fantastic and unique insight into the criminal mind whilst maintaining all the elements of suspense, adventure, and action that you expect from Talbot.
