Hansen…has written an amusing romp full of vicious and eccentric characters. He shows considerable skill in creating complex scenes, as well as a sharp sense of the ridiculous… – Courier Mail

A Man You Can Bank On displays the full array of Hansen’s skills as a storyteller. There’s the drama, tension, intrigue, comedy and a well fleshed-out mix of quirky characters, and a storyline that’s as refreshing as it is entertaining.
Lambert Hampton is the man the small, drought-ravaged country town of Munni-Munni turn to when they uncover $3 million stolen from bookies by ruthless bandits and busied seemingly in the middle of nowhere.
A former bank manager, Lambert uses the money and his considerable entrepreneurial skills to rescue the town and re-establish it on a viable economic footing.
The day of reckoning comes when the crims are released from gaol.
The crims want their money.
The cops want their money.
A rogue investigator wants the money.
And so do Australia’s two most notorious hit men.

In trying to save his town and all he’s achieved, Lambert is forced to risk everything – his life, the lives of town folk, his own daughter, ten thousand barramundi and a really loveable Jack Russell.
