I have rated this book 4.5 stars and would recommend it to anyone seeking a light hearted mystery to enjoy.
I obtained this book from Amazon in Kindle format.
And there was. There's not a lot of laugh-out-loud moments, but there's a pleasant undercurrent of humor that runs throughout the entire book. In this fun tale, some smart old-timers get royally shafted by their new boss, the underhanded son of the company's former owner, and in a story that's way too close to reality for way too many people, the no-good so-and-so cheats them out of everything they've worked for, leaving them outta work, outta benefits, and outta their retirement funds. But what they aren't out of is smarts, combined with a determination to get back what's owed them.
Moral of this story? Don't mess with old farts.
Although the book could have benefited from some additional editing, it's definitely a worthwhile, fun, and fast read. Okay, so technically, it's a crime to steal, but trust me, you'll be rooting for this geriatric Bonnie and Clyde to get back what's theirs, and for that crooked young boss with a cocky attitude to get exactly what he deserves.
Writing is not an easy job. I respect anyone who puts forth the time and effort to unleash their creative genius, but really...do yourself a favor and find a halfway decent editor. This is a great plot and could have been a phenomenal book.
Betty has cancer which has caused them to have to pay for medical treatments. Wayne at 70 is a brilliant man & Betty is quite intelligent too. They decide a plan to get back what they were cheated out of. Remember Wayne is a talented engineer.
Read the book to follow what happens. This is an amazing story. Too much to describe, there is major dangers along the way. Had a hard time not to stay up really to finish this book!
Well written. Would make a great movie.
