THE CHARACTERS: There are many characters that play a really important role in this story, but the protagonists are Linda and John Bentley. The couple plan a great robbery at ‘’Sandwell’s’’, a jewelry where they both work. We have also a man, Frankie Simpson; he is a person who fences products. Additionally, we meet ‘’The Fenton’s’’ Colin Fenton who is in charge of teaching computer software courses, and his wife, Julie Fenton who is a software developer, they both work in the same company, C.J.F software solutions. Moreover, at this place there are 2 more employees Rob and Jenny, the programmers. The accountant of C.J.F is Mr. Booker, and finally Mark Ashwood who is an accountant and business consultant. THE THEME: How greed leads you to become a criminal. We can realize that the theme is related to greed. Throughout the story Linda tries to get whatever she wants. She is inclined to do whatever it takes to get away with the crime. Therefore, she is greedy. We noticed that she receives a decent wage; however, the more money she has, the more she wants. In fact, she makes a plan to break in “Sandwell’s”, the jewelry where she works. What kind of people bite the hand that feeds them? That is incredible. If we think for a moment Linda Bentley is the greed made human. As a consequence, her ambition drives her to jail.
