The Getaway by Jim Thomposon
Paperback – Mulholland Books – May 2014 – 225 pages
Doc McCoy may be the most skilled bank robber alive. But when he doesn’t hit the mark for the first time in his long carrerr, Doc realizrs that the perfect robbery isn’t complete without the perfect escape.
The Getaway is the classic story of a bank heist gone horribly wrong, where the smallest mistakes have catastrophic consequences, and shifting loyalties between a man, his wife, and his partner can lead to deadly betrayals. The basis for the classic Steve McQueen film of the same name, as well as a 1994 remake with Alec Baldwin, The Getaway set the bar for every heist story that followed–but as Jim Thompson has proved time and again, nobody’s ever done it better than the master.
