Damnable Fun by Victoria Knight and Hyperion Knight
A few years after high school, Christina can’t take the dull, workaday world anymore, so she gets the old gang together to pull off a small-town bank heist. Seeking the criminal mastermind status she craves, she recruits her concert pianist brother Van, car-thief friend Walter, and hot ex-boyfriend Sonny. What’s supposed to be an easy little inside job turns into a rollicking adventure as these amateur criminals attempt to go pro. In the midst of planning a major federal crime in a weekend, will the thrill of being bad reignite the romantic-crime-duo chemistry between Christina and Sonny? Will sophisticated pianist Van get caught red-handed and lose the prestigious career for which he sacrificed his youth? Will Walter’s wacky schizophrenic mom or Sonny’s nosy teen-runaway cousin be the downfall of the whole gang? Damnable Fun is more than a page-turner heist novel, it’s darn fun fiction loosely based upon the true story of the largest unsolved bank burglary in Northern California.

We are brother and sister Victoria and Hyperion Knight, and back in the booming, upbeat, hair-band decade of the 1980s, we were the top suspects of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for a bank heist we didn’t commit, but we can’t blame them for being suspicious. The FBI had never met the likes of us before … Our teenaged years consisted of one hair-brained petty-criminal scheme after another. Amazingly, we were never arrested, but our exploits garnered a lot of attention from law enforcement.
A few years later, a local bank was burglarized, and for many weeks, the FBI Special Agent in charge of the investigation only had eyes for us. Even though we’ll never know who actually perpetrated the crime, it loomed so large in our imaginations that, years later, we still feel compelled to tell the story of how we would have done the heist if it had been us. Of course, we didn’t really do it . . . or did we?
