The police know a bank will be robbed during the race that stops the nation. To catch the thieves, they must let the heist happen. It'll be the quickest bust in history. . . at least, that's the plan.
A fresh, fast-paced cocktail of a heist, a good cause and some seriously unexpected consequences…
Jackson Rich is an unlucky man – his life has been tumbling out of control for years, and now it looks like he’s going to lose the love of his life. To buy his terminally ill wife Candice more time, he’ll try just about anything. Including robbing a bank.
Jack needs help to do it, and he calls in his old gang. It’s been decades since they were all together, but they owe him – at least that’s what he’s banking on. Nothing could possibly go wrong. Until a couple of kids overhear Jack and his gang planning the robbery, that is.
Even after thirty-odd years as a cop Detective Steel has never been presented with a scenario like this, but he has to act upon the tip-off he’s been given. Somewhere in Brisbane, during the running of the 1992 Melbourne Cup horse race, a bank is going to be robbed. But to catch the thieves, Steel must let the heist happen. He’s about to make the quickest bust in history. At least, that’s the plan!
