About Book

ESCAPE AND EVASION is the story of city banker Joseph Aschroft.

In the book’s opening pages he steals $1.34 billion from his own bank, gives it untraceably to impoverished strangers worldwide, and flees.

Why has he done this, and will he get away with it?

An ex-soldier, Joseph discounts leaving the country in favour of hiding close by, first in the city, then in the woods near the home of his estranged family. He is hunted by Ben Lancaster, the bank’s head of security and, as it happens, a former army friend. The two men share a violent, guilt-ridden past.

ESCAPE AND EVASION is a tragicomic tale of buried secrets, the lengths a man will go to to win back those he loves, and the fallout from a monumental change of heart.
