Sometimes robbing a bank can become a lot more dangerous than you planned.

Halloween night. Belfast city centre. In the freezing, pelting rain, three men in wolf costumes decide to rob a bank. Everything goes awry for the bank robbers when the security systems do not run the way they expect!

About to flee empty handed, the youngest of the trio, Brian, confronts a customer who is gripping a large briefcase. The man, tall and very muscular strikes an intimating figure, and is not about to give up the briefcase easily. He is knocked over the head with a gun by Brian and falls into unconsciousness, his briefcase removed.

Back at base, the three are initially despondent at lack of success, until they open the briefcase. Over half a million pounds is inside. They can’t believe their luck. But why is the media reporting an attempted robbery instead of an actual one? And why no mention of the customer being assaulted? 

Mystery and intrigue follow and an exciting story unfolds in this crime thriller.

The Bespoke Hitman is Millar on top form. Jack Porter is the most original hitman/assassin you will come across, as well as lethal. A complex crime noir story balanced with Millar’s legendary dark humor and fast-paced plotting, The Bespoke Hitman is another winner from the King of Irish noir.”

Jon Land, New York Times best-selling author, Betrayal: Whitey Bulger and the FBI Agent Who Fought to Bring Him Down

“What happens when you rob a bank belonging to people who can rain down your biggest nightmare upon your head, and that’s just for starters? What happens when you think you can evade that nightmare, and foolishly try and kill what can’t be killed? Hold on to your seats. You’re in for the ride of your life with The Bespoke Hitman and Millar deviously pushing cops and robbers to the edge of their sanity in the chase of a life time.”
