Description

The story of a bank robbery and its aftermath, of cross and double-cross, told with the unflinching eye of America's greatest crimewriter, THE GETAWAY is a Dante-esque tour of the underworld, a place where no motive is pure and no tie is too sacred to be betrayed in a nightmarish split second.show more
