Having worked for thirty years for Bank of America in Southern, California –the bank robbery capital of the world – Judith Slaughter has been through her share of bank robberies.
Slaughter’s debut novel “The Accidental Bank Heist” follows a bank manager through the moral crisis of whether to keep the million dollars of stolen money that falls into her lap and through the repercussions of her decision.
“In our hearts we all have a Darwinian somewhat tribal morality; it explains why we watch Breaking Bad! We see a deep kindness hidden in Jeanette; she has done wrong, but you do not want her to be caught,” Slaughter said.
As the author entertains her readers with the complex character, she enlightens them about economics and the reality of the banking world.
“I wanted to explain in a novel type way what really happened when the financial crisis hit. Most people have no clue – they give the government a pass – but the government has been involved in financial manipulation for years,” Slaughter said.
