Australia’s Biggest Ever Bank Robbery!

Breaking the BankSo just when did Australia’s biggest bank robbery occur?

Where did it happen?

How did it happen?

Who was involved?

And what was the outcome and ramifications of the robbery?

Can you answer any of these questions? I know I sure couldn’t. But you’ll find answers to all of these and many more in Carol Baxter’s book “Breaking the Bank“.

I have recently finished reading this book, and like her other titles, it is a true page turner. As with her other titles, this is none-fiction true story is written in the style of a novel. She makes you ‘feel’ the happenings through her words, and she educates you on an amazing part of Australia’s history while doing so.

I’m not going to answer the questions above … so this probably isn’t considered a “book review” as such, so I’m not sure if it qualifies for the “Australian Womens Writers Challenge“, however it is a book written by a female Australian author … so it still may.

Instead of answering the questions above, I’m going to suggest you either buy or borrow a copy of the book, and read it for yourself.

And while I know it is incredibly clichè to say that you won’t be disappointed, but I do truly believe that. Enjoy!!
