Publisher's Summary

Martin Carter is having a crook day. His home life's a misery, he's been retrenched by the bank, and everyone's forgotten his birthday. But a million-dollar payroll, a pistol, and a split-second decision change everything. Hurtling north on a motorcycle with the intriguing Faith, Martin encounters a mysterious hit-man, a new-age bike gang, a reclusive media mogul, and the booby-trapped mountain hideout of an old schoolmate. With Faith's help he learns about love again, along with some bitter truths about instant coffee, brown suede shoes, and the legendary Great Aussie Truck-stop Breakfast.

Delightful

This is the perfect book for a long drive or while doing chores. It's a very funny roimp through the Australian countryside with a bank manager who has just turned fifty and decides to rob his bank branch that just closed and chuck it all. You will laugh out loud. Very enjoyable.

Lots of fun

The story did not work my brain extra hard, but I really had a good time listening to it. It was fun, funny and entertaining. This probably has something to do with turning 50 this year.

Very enjoyable

A great light hearted story that takes you on a journey through Australia with a lot of dry humour. Peter Hosking as the reader adds a lot to the story and it is a great listen on a long drive or flight.
Highly recommended.

Enjoyable and Funny Australian Story

The first chapter made me think "What have I purchased" but preserve as it is a funny Australian story.

Fun adventure

Fun story. Not dissing the narrator however some books cannot translate in someone elses voice. There are a lot of one liners that just do not come across right. All up, I got into it and enjoyed the characters.
