How To Steal a Truck Full of Nickels – Book Review

Jeffrey Cooper is a newly-found author residing in LA, California with his wife, talented daughter and three spoiled rescue dogs ‘that have no idea how privileged they really are’ is what he often has to say about them. His debut How To Steal A Truck Full Of Nickels is the story of two brothers Reuben, a small time hustler and Rico, his older brother.

When Reuben has to return a long standing debt of a loan shark Jimmy Friday, he decides the best way to do so is hijack a truck full of nickels. What he doesn’t know is that the truck holds less than what he has promised to the loan shark. Now that the news of hijacking a truck has reached to the police stations and the FBI, they are out to get them. The two brothers have only two choices; either to suffer bodily harm at the hands of Jimmy Friday’s men or to spend a long stretched life in prison.

But then there is also this one option to run away and start over in Mexico. But how insane is that?

When Rico’s ex girlfriend comes back into the scenes and they start dating once again, she accompanies them on their trip to Mexico and know what to do with the truck full of nickels. What follows next is a madcap adventure race from the FBI agent Martin Shea, who has sworn to catch them all; locals, con men, federal law enforcement and thieves looking for opportunities to the border.

Will they be able to stay one step ahead of all them or will their master plan fail them all?
