When Harry Gartner's business falls into the fat receiver's hands confusion reigns in the family. Steven leaves Karen and the farm, and finds Jane, investigative journalist. Emily, for her children's sake, wishes she'd never signed that personal guarantee. Together, they need to thwart the machinations of the Pinton brothers - Alan, the duplicitous accountant, and Michael, the lawyer, who is bad to the bones. Bankrupts and Bandits is a rollicking, topical and racy novel, set squarely in the Australian financial landscape of the 1990s.
