Summary
  • Why would a dead man need an alibi? Bug and Roche work for the National Detective Agency. They solve mysteries for a living using well established, step-by-step procedures - and plenty of wisecracks, insults and bad office coffee. When they're sent to check out a suspicious car crash involving an already dead driver, they smell something fishy. They quickly work out the crash was part a much larger crime - a multimillion-dollar-bank heist. But unravelling the connections isn't easy - especially when more people start dying - and the coffee isn't getting any better. Witty and wise, with a nod to the golden age of pulp fiction, Alibi for a Dead Man is an ingenious novel by a talented newcomer
  • You'd think robbing a bank would be an easy way to make money. Outside of the occasional shot fired at you, a bank is where the money exists, and is yours for the having. While this idea may be okay for the casual robber, it doesn't hold true for the professional. If you want the bucks, but don't want to get shot or do time in the nearest pen, then robbing banks is very hard. The best way to rob a bank is to be there when other people ain't and to leisurely load the dough into the handy bag you brought for the occasion. To be there when people ain't means a lot of planning, cause there are often people there, people with guns. So, if you want to make a living on other people's money then don't ever, and I mean ever, rob a bank during banker's hours, or even during waking hours. Rob a bank at night..
