The robbery of the century…
There is a solid gold Buddha in Bangkok and Bernard Miller is going to steal it.
Not the entire thing, of course… only 5 million pounds’ worth.
His wife is dead and his son has an expensive and life-threatening disease.
If Miller can’t get the gold quickly he won’t be able to afford his son’s treatment.
At this point, Miller will do anything.
Luckily, he’s amassed a rag-tag group with just as little to lose: a failed American sculptor, a penniless theatre owner and a debt-ridden businessman.
But of course it won’t be that easy: Miller and his men will need to outwit the police force, a mob boss and somehow get the Buddha out of one of the most revered temples in all of Bangkok.
If they manage that they’ll split the gold four ways… if they haven’t betrayed each other first…
The Solid Gold Buddha is a gripping literary thriller filled with suspense and action that will keep you gripped.
