Carter Tomlin, corporate America, loses his job and resorts to robbing banks as a means to pay the mortgage & pay bills. I think this is one of the BEST books I have read. This story is so expertly woven that I literally could not put the book down. It is extremely fast paced, and you are hooked after the first page. Tomlin's descent into a madness of violence is perpetuated by the adrenalin rush he gets. Desperate people do desperate things. At any cost, to maintain the American Dream.

Kate Morton always makes me feel like I have stepped back through a portal in time, she so graphically describes the surroundings that I feel like I'm standing there witnessing the story as it unfolds. With rich characters, the story takes place during WWII & present time in England. The story line was one of intrigue. Just when I thought I had the mystery solved, there would be other facts that made me question my theory. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading this author again.♥toni
