Meet Guest Author Harry Dodgson


Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Forthcoming book. The Great Australian Bank Job

Magda makes a  living stealing industrial secrets, but when she get a secret file,

stolen from the government, she knows how dangerous it  is. For safety, she puts it in her safety deposit box

at the local bank. Her box also has enough  information in it to put her in jail for a  long time.

Four middle aged, unemployed men find an old, abandoned tunnel that runs under the vault of the local bank. When they rob

the bank at Easter, they not only take  a lot of money, they also get Magda’s files.

Now she has to find the robbers, and  quickly. But there are  others on the hunt too, and they

are not only  wanting the file, they want  her too-preferably dead.
