Publisher's Summary

Martin Carter is having a crook day. His home life's a misery, he's been retrenched by the bank, and everyone's forgotten his birthday. But a million-dollar payroll, a pistol, and a split-second decision change everything. Hurtling north on a motorcycle with the intriguing Faith, Martin encounters a mysterious hit-man, a new-age bike gang, a reclusive media mogul, and the booby-trapped mountain hideout of an old schoolmate. With Faith's help he learns about love again, along with some bitter truths about instant coffee, brown suede shoes, and the legendary Great Aussie Truck-stop Breakfast.

Audible Editor Reviews

Geoffrey McGeachin didn't publish his first novel until 2004, but since the award-winning debut of Fat, Fifty, and F***ed!, McGeachin has made up for lost time, writing two complete series in the wake of his initial success. The author is like the Australian version of Carl Hiaasen, populating his novels with wit, humor, and (often) criminal action.
Actor Peter Hosking has performed more than 100 audiobooks over the course of several decades. He brings his expert pacing and agility to this winner of the inaugural Australian Popular Fiction Competition. The performance is above all entertaining, taking emotionally defeated protagonist Martin Carter from 0 to 60 in a matter of seconds.

Delightful

This is the perfect book for a long drive or while doing chores. It's a very funny roimp through the Australian countryside with a bank manager who has just turned fifty and decides to rob his bank branch that just closed and chuck it all. You will laugh out loud. Very enjoyable.

Lots of fun

The story did not work my brain extra hard, but I really had a good time listening to it. It was fun, funny and entertaining. This probably has something to do with turning 50 this year.
