(From the publisher):
ANYBODY CAN ROB A BANK
"Hell," Lightfoot said, "People walk into banks with paper bags and fill them up with money. Anybody can rob a bank."
The man eyed him coldly. "The newest vaults have walls of reinforced concrete five feet thick. There are microphones, electric eyes, vibration detectors... There were times I almost forgot about the money."
Lightfoot turned to look at him. "What money?"
"Brinks. Got into the vault with armor-piercing shells. I used a 20mm cannon."
"That was on the news," Lightfoot yelled. "The guy never got caught. They called him the thunderbolt. Is that you? Thunderbolt?"
The man nodded. Lightfoot was beside himself with excitement. "Thunderbolt! Thunderbolt and Lightfoot! That really sounds like something, doesn't it?"
So they teamed up to rob a bank. One did it to prove he still had the professional touch. The other to find out if he was a man.
