Charlie Poole is proof of inertia. Stuck tending bar (badly) in his gangster uncle's Brooklyn saloon, he doesn't like his job much, can't imagine leaving Brooklyn, but doesn't see its charms either. Doesn't want to stay, doesn't want to go, so he keeps on keeping on, and getting drinks wrong. Suddenly, two hit men interrupt his ennui. Oops! Gotta move now; he's about to be killed.

So he's on the run, forced to start living, just to avoid dying. For the first time in his life, he has to leave Brooklyn.

Now Charlie has to learn how to handle his Mafia Uncle Al. Point with a gun, not a finger, and threaten to tell Aunt Florence everything! He has to learn how to deal with a beautiful woman who saves his life and must do the one thing he has always avoided: stand up for himself.

Of course great humor is woven throughout, and the audiobook boasts a terrific narrator. Download and start listening now!

    " A real quick, fun read. Westlake has yet to let me down. I actually like his later "humor added" works better than the early stuff, but it's all good. This one is a page turner, action from beginning to end. "
