Publisher's Summary

Four masked men - thieves, rivals, and friends from the tough streets of Charlestown - take on a Boston bank at gunpoint. Holding bank manager Claire Keesey hostage and cleaning out the vault were simple tasks. But career criminal Doug MacRay didnt plan on one thing: falling hard for Claire.
When he tracks her down without his mask and gun, their mutual attraction is undeniable. With a tenacious FBI agent following his every move, he imagines a life away from his gritty, dangerous work, a life centered around Claire. But before that can happen, Doug and his crew learn that there may be a way to rob Boston's venerable baseball stadium, Fenway Park. Risky yet utterly irresistible, it would be the perfect heist to end his criminal career and begin a new life. But, as it turns out, pursuing Claire may be the most dangerous act of all.
Racing to an explosive climax, The Town is a brash tale of robbery in all its forms - and an unforgettable odyssey of crime, love, ambition, and dreams.

Interesting Concept; Wooden Characters

The title says it all. The story line had promise, despite requiring the "suspension of disbelief", but I never did get any 'sense' of the characters. They were very two dimensional, in my opinion. By the end of the audiobook I stil wasn't sure what any of them looked like, and I didn't know much more about their emotional and mental outlook either.
