About the Book

THE FATAL HEIST is a unique crime thriller as deftly plotted as it is tough, philosophically trenchant and suspenseful. Wolf, a professional thief, survives a violent police raid on an apartment where he and his colleagues, all criminals, have gathered to divide the money acquired during a bank robbery on the previous day. All of his colleagues are killed. Another colleague and thief, Duster, has appropriated the money in association with a corrupt police officer named Keyes. Wolf seeks refuge in the apartment of his lover Rita, a disbarred lawyer, but he flees the apartment when several men arrive to murder him. As he eludes police and sinister criminals who intend to kill him, Wolf undertakes a desperate search for the stolen money and his dangerous quest involves beautiful women and dishonest cops, prostitutes, gangsters and dissolute thieves. There are vivid gun battles and relentless action sequences but there are also philosophical reflections that distinguish THE FATAL HEIST as a superior entertainment that will appeal to general audiences as much as it will challenge and fascinate the most fastidious readers.
