A young man is witness to a bank robbery and his life changes in unexpected ways. We meet a number of characters with no apparent link to each other but bit by bit we see a grand design bringing them closer. It is hard to say much without giving away the plot.
It is an excellent book which I found compelling. Really unique plot and well written. My heart went out to some characters. thers needed a good talking to!
i really recommend this book. It would be fun to discuss it with friens too.
I would recommend it to all that enjoy a down to earth plot, interesting characters and a momentum that entices you to continually pick it back up.
