The prequel to the Lagotti Family series, this stand-alone novella follows Frank Lagotti as he tries to get some bread to pay the rent and maybe make some seed capital so he can rob a bank one day.
His pal Louis might be the brains of the outfit but he also has a keen interest in sex and drugs – not a great mix when your future rests on the next robbery and he’s the one who has planned everything out to the finest detail. Or not.
Can they pull off the job with their motley gang or will the cops come screeching round the corner and shoot them all to hell?
The Lagotti Family series follows Frank and his girlfriend Mary Lou as they rob a bank, try to escape and live off the proceeds of their crimes – spanning thirty years of American crime family life.
