Bob Heggie is a banker at the end of a dead end career. He hates his job, his boss, his life. His wife has left him. He hardly knows his kids and his closest friend is a down and out newspaper seller and they're not really close. In the early mornings he wanders the moors of Northern England with a pair of dogs he doesn't like, listening to Bob Dylan sing about a great bank robbery on his iPod. The Jack of Hearts in that song is the kind of man Bob imagines himself to be, but he knows he'll always be just plain old boring Bob Heggie Then one morning he is nearly killed in an armed robbery and he starts to think. If he were to steal the bank's money, he'd come up with a better way. But would he survive to spend his ill gotten gains?

This is British writer Ken Scott’s debut novel with Bootleg Press and we are happy to have him aboard. JACK OF HEARTS is a thriller we are proud of. A year in the writing, longer in the second draft, but the story was worth the wait, worth the effort.
Newcastle Banker Bob Heggie lives alone in a barely furnished flat. His wife has thrown him over for another man and taken the children he loves. His boss treats him like a dog, often humiliating him in front of the other employees.
Then he buys a motorcycle, meets a younger woman and is almost killed during a daring, daylight bank robbery. The motorcycle, a Harley Sportster, gives him confidence, the girl confuses him and the robbery changes him.
While walking the moors in the early morning, listening to Bob Dylan sing about the Jack of Hearts on his iPod, he devises a scheme, a grand plan, to get even with the bank and the boss he loathes.
Give this story a try, we think you’ll like it. Well, we hope you do. Mr. Scott is busy working on the sequel and we hope, if you try this one, that you’ll come back for that.
