Clive White, the Mail newspaper’s investigative reporter receives a call from a police contact following the arrest of two elderly ladies for suspected armed robbery. What reporter could resist following that up!
Out of the blue, a D-notice is slapped on his attempts to secure more information and the police are advised to drop the case. Why? What reason was there for MI5 to spike the story and stop any investigation?
Clive’s subsequent enquiries reveal that the two old dears are extremely wealthy in their own right. Their hidden talents – one being a kleptomaniac and the other a nymphomaniac – are put to good use in their daring escapades, which are carried out for altruistic motives – to rob the rich to pay the poor!
As latter-day Robin Hoods, the two ladies pull off some of the most daring robberies all over Europe, taking on not only the Mafia, but the elite and … the Establishment.
Their secret past is protected by MI5. Why? What have they done to deserve this?
Edward Evans has crafted an immensely humorous and fascinating read.
