Duke City Split  A cool, calm, and collected bank robber—with two kids at home—heads a fascinating cast of characters in Duke City Split, the first in a trilogy of white-knuckle thrillers from Max Austin.
Bud Knox isn’t your average bank robber. He’s happiest fixing a nice lunch for his wife on her lunch break or watching his two young daughters play soccer. He leaves the boldness and brawn to his partner, Mick Wyman. In the past fourteen years, they’ve hit nearly thirty banks all over the West—everywhere but “Duke City,” their hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico. 
So when Mick calls him about the perfect job, Bud is less than convinced, because the target is on their own turf. But with the potential to haul in millions, Bud simply can’t say no. If they do this job right, Bud may never have to work again.
As it turns out, the heist is the easy part. Holding onto the money while evading everyone from the FBI to the Mafia to the low-life criminals who want a cut will be the hardest thing Bud Knox has ever done—and it might just cost him his life.

This book is about two bank robbers who have been robbing banks for over 14 years. One Bud, is married with two little girls who he takes to school and picks them up and takes them to soccer practice and dance class. His partner Max moves around a lot and does not like to give out his name he tries to under the radar. Max meets a young man in a bar with an idea about a job tells him that it is easy and that he wants to be in on it. Max tells him there are no easy jobs and that they well get back to him. After talking to Bud and going against their rule of not doing a job in their home town they case the bank and come up with a plan. Getting back with the young guy and letting him helping on the job still does not fell right to Bud but he goes along with it. The robbery is easy they are in and out no one is hurt. They get away with their biggest score yet but the money was from an Indian casino with ties to the mob in Chicago and the FBI are also on the case. From there the story takes on a whole different life and the beast of the criminal comes out chasing them for the money. This all leads to a big shoot out at the end and along the way before then there are bodies hidden as well. A very well written book and the characters were all believable. I really enjoyed this book. I got this book from net galley.
