Bob Heggie is just how you would imagine a middle class bank manager would be, looking in from the outside that is. Deep down he is in turmoil. His wife has left him for another man and his visits with the children are far too infrequent. He is trapped in a career with no challenge and no promotion prospects. A series of small misdemeanours has left him on the verge of dismissal. He is suffocating and can't see a way out. At times, he thinks he is moving towards that thin line where sanity ends and his worst nightmare begins. Then a dramatic event changes Bob's life. He stumbles upon a violent bank raid. He witnesses a young woman lying motionless, a pool of blood oozing from her head. Her face is twisted and contorted and lacks any sign of life. One or two high-ranking officials at the funeral and of course a representation from the branch. A small death in service benefit. maybe? If she has served her probationary period that is, if not a nice little saving for the bank, perhaps a fraction of a penny on the share price? He makes a decision to leave the bank forever.
He formulates the perfect heist, the perfect way to rob his employers, sting them, embarrass them, shame them, and hurt them where it hurts them the most. He plans everything down to the last minute detail and realises that it just could work. But has he got the bottle to carry it off? Has he got the nerve? And after everything. supposing.just supposing he could pull it off.could he carry on as normal for months or even years afterwards? Would they see through him. would they realise that the culprit was in their very midst. Mr reliable, Mr dependable, Mr tedious. Boring Bob.
