Bottle rocket

Published 2008
Item Details

After his stay in a mental hospital, Anthony reconnects with best pal Dignan, who greets his friend with a plan for them to become professional thieves working for a criminal mastermind named Mr. Henry. Step one: recruit a wheelman--Bob, a bored, wealthy 20-something living in fear of his older brother. Step two: rob a strip mall bookstore. Step three: go on the lam, which in this case means hide out at a motel in the middle of nowhere and, for Anthony at least, fall in love with a Paraguayan housekeeper named Inez. Step four: join up with Mr. Henry and pull off the heist of their lives - sort of.
