A Charlie Wiggs Thriller
Publication date: September 19, 2017
Synopsis … The Crime of the Century is about to be committed…again…
In the early hours of a Thursday morning in August 1963, one of the UK’s most famous crimes was committed when a Royal Mail train, heading from London to Glasgow, was robbed of £2.6 million. Over five decades later, the real mastermind behind the robbery, a man who got no credit, but who wants it, is determined to top the original robbery by stealing the entire wealth of a fleeing Glasgow crime lord from a train—in exactly the same spot that the original crime took place.
Meanwhile Charlie Wiggs, a small-time unassuming accountant, discovers that his friend, Tina, has stolen a drawing worth £400,000 in a bid to get out from under crushing debt—and it’s now in that same Glasgow crime lord’s collection, on that very train.
If Tina can’t get the drawing back she’ll go to jail—or worse. Desperate, she asks Charlie to help.
Charlie has only one solution: team up with the violent, bitter mastermind and steal the drawing back—and in the process, become one of the most notorious train robbers in British history.
Praise for FALLING TOO:
“Falling Too is a praiseworthy encore to Brown’s debut novel, Falling, and more fun than a barrel of Glenfiddish.” —J.L. Abramo, Shamus Award-winning author of Circling the Runway
“Gordon Brown’s Falling Too starts at a gallop and doesn’t let up. A highly enjoyable read that is as much fun as it is gritty and pacey. This is Tartan Noir at its finest.” —Matt Hilton, author of the Joe Hunter thrillers
Praise for FALLING:
“Chaos reigns as the plot comes thick and fast in this thriller told from alternating perspectives of a brilliantly drawn cast of characters. If Guy Richie is looking for his next hit crime caper, he could do worse.” —Daily Record
“Throughout, Brown keeps a firm, skilful grip on his material in what turns out to be a very promising debut novel.” —The Herald
