I discovered this book after the author Dan McNeil followed me on Twitter. There is a picture of the book-cover in his Twitter banner. After looking up the synopsis on Amazon, I thought it sounded interesting enough to download the eBook and give it a read.
This story is based in early 1964, just as the Beatles were about to invade America. It follows the premise that there were no crimes committed in New York City the night the Beatles appeared for the first time on the Ed Sullivan show on February 7, 1964.
The main characters in this book are four adorable, lovable and awkward ex-bank robbers that will keep you entertained throughout this book. McNeil takes you step by step through their plans to pull off one more bank robbery, while injecting humor, sex and touching moments into his story. And though this is one more Fab Four fan fiction book, he stays pretty damn true to the story of John, Paul, George and Ringo’s appearance on the Ed Sullivan show while still mixing them into the antics.
You will laugh. You will have a tears in your eyes. You will enjoy this light read.
I rate this book: 3 out of 4 Beetles!
