My Book Recommendation

Tomlinson’s perfectly planned bank robbery is fouled up by unexpected contingencies:- his partner is shot and dies, on his hands, and a baby-sitter- on the run from an amorous father- is an unfortunate witness and subsequent victim. Her murder sets off a chain reaction of violence in a suburban development, an innocent man is charged, and finally- through the neighbors- a loyal wife is able to connect the crimes for the police. The Long Island suburbs provide a recognizable frame of reference. Trim.
