Tara and her father have a very unusual relationship: they rob banks together and have been doing so since Tara was a girl. But she is grown up now, and she'd rather do something else--except that dear old Dad, dear old homicidal-maniac Dad, is having some serious separation anxiety. To make matters worse, the duo is on the lam from the cops (and from some nasty former partners in crime), and Tara is developing a crush on a lawman's son. Recommend this intriguing first mystery to readers who enjoy the comic capers novels of Hiaasen, Leonard, and Westlake. David PittCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
A stunning debut. Cook's novel will make you think someone transported Carl Hiaasen to the desert Southwest. --Steve Brewer, author of "Bank Job"
