Keeping up with the 2015 Ned Kelly Submissions - Best First Crime

This year I've promised myself a red hot go at reading the entire submissions list for all 3 of the Ned Kelly Categories. Preferably before the 2016 Submissions List is released although there are days when I think I might have bitten off more than I can possibly chew. Still - getting there :)

Next up Best First Crime - which is looking better in terms of keeping up with the submitted books.

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Debut book - high tech bank robbery!

From the Blurb:

A bank in Los Angeles, assumed to be impregnable, has its valuable taken. No idea how or when the crime was committed.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, a woman is kidnapped but her husband does not alert authorities for three days. Why?

No Time to Lose

Category:

Thriller

Kip Keplar is intrigued by the perfect bank robbery. Whoever pulled it off slipped away with a mysterious ancient gem, property belonging to modern-day titans and US military secrets.

The authorities know "what" was taken and "why" (greed - why else?) but no clue as to "when", "how" or by "who".

Retrieving this bountiful treasure-trove at all costs is an understatement. Wits are matched and tested and lives are on the line as the clock counts down, and there is no time to lose, for both the hunters and the hunted.
