Buy from Kindle ImageThe Magpie Trap, which was first published in 2008 as a paperback, is now finally available in Kindle format. You can download the ebook from here. And here’s a quick synopsis:

“Undertaking one of the most audacious heists in modern times is not usually something that people scribble in to their dog-eared lists of ‘things to do before you’re thirty’. Nevertheless, as real life and responsibility close in on our three unhappy heroes, that is exactly what they find themselves planning to do.

This is a modern morality tale, written with no little humour. It’s about the dark side of the mid-to-late 90’s financial boom. Set in the city of Leeds, UK, this action-packed tale is an excoriating commentary on allowing money to rule your life…

Danny Morris wakes up on the sofa with the furred-tongue and pounding headache of a serious hangover. On the coffee table is the sorry evidence of the previous night’s festivities; the mostly empty bottle of whisky, the overflowing ashtray and the greasy pizza box. There’s something else there too; the bag of money, loot from one of the most audacious heists undertaken in modern times.

A.J Kirby’s ‘The Magpie Trap’ is a high-octane crime thriller in which a band of unlikely criminals discover a technical loop-hole which will allow them to walk out of Edison’s Printers, carrying with them the famous Precisioner printer – the world’s most powerful bank-note printer.

Will they get away with their crime? Will the money bring them a better life? Or will the dogged ex-detective Jim Hunter pick up their scent? Can they escape the magpie trap?”
