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:
“Gordon Brown has a knack that can only be described as uncanny. He can put you into his hero’s shoes—even when those shoes have stepped into very unsavory places. Falling Too begins at lightning speed—only briefly slowed by the occasional analogy which any reader will appreciate despite some peculiarly Scottish references. Crammed with intelligent humor and palpable danger, this 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
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
