In this clever and hilarious novel set during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, a group of down-on-their-luck, small-town knuckleheads decide that their only way out of financial purgatory is to rob the local bank. Dee Dee Kaminski, a restaurant owner in Upstate New York with a penchant for terrible decisions, is their leader, and he's accompanied by his brother-in-law Ford and best friend Mike, each of whom is emotionally-broken and dreams of fleeing the forgotten, rust belt town of Claudius. The gang brings in more and more members through their ineptitude, including Patty, the fast-driving school lunch lady, and pyromaniac brothers Travis and Garrett, who are less interested in stealing money than they are in blowing things up.
The local authorities, however, won't take this lying down, and the Claudius Police Department engage in a battle of slow wits with Dee Dee and the gang. Police Chief Ed Brown becomes convinced that the bank robbery is actually part of an ISIS plot to destroy small-town America.
Just when the plans seem to be working, things are complicated by local bank manager Tim Duffy, an out-of-towner who's much too fancy to be working in Claudius, who claims that he wants to actually help Dee Dee and the gang rob his bank for even more lucrative sums of cash.
After multiple tries, each more hilarious than the last, the gang get closer and closer to success, but no one is who they seem, and they're foiled constantly on all sides. We get to be passengers on this journey through small-town America, a segment of society too often forgotten in the current economic and political climate. The characters are all real, raw, and charming, and you'll find yourself rooting for the unlikeliest of heroes on this adventure.
The story is told in a rotating, first-person point-of-view which is incredibly readable and feels almost cinematic. You won't believe how quickly you're able to read this hysterical thriller! It's the perfect read for readjusting to normal life and reminding us all how far we've come. If you love traditional heist or bank robbery novels and movies, this funny twist on a classic formula will have you chuckling quietly to yourself or even laughing out loud.
