The real motive wasn't love and it wasn't greed . . . It rose to the surface out of a grey pit of boredom.

When Charlie Pritchard is shown a way to escape his mundane and monotonous life as a small-town bank clerk in a tiny Welsh resort in the 1920s, and live instead in wealth with beautiful Delphine, he knows that this is his only chance. And he has to take it - even if the plan is to rob his own bank.

However, as zero hour approaches he realises that there is far more at stake than he had ever imagined, and that there will be no escape, no escape at all.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Mr Delderfield's manner is easy, modest, heartwarming * Evening Standard *
R F Delderfield is a born storyteller * Sunday Mirror *
Sheer, wonderful storytelling * Chicago Tribune *
It is always a pleasure to read R F Delderfield, because he never seems to be ashamed of writing well * Books and Bookmen *
'He built an imposing artistic social history that promises to join those of his great forebears in the long, noble line of the English novel. His narratives belong in a tradition that goes back to John Galsworthy and Arnold Bennett' Life Magazine * Life Magazine *
