This time out John Dortmunder and his merry band of crooks return to the scene of the crime world in an attempt to steal a fleet of automobiles that would leave the sultan of Brunei blushing. The mark is Monroe Hall, corrupt CEO of a now defunct conglomerate, who spent more of his company’s money on himself than the boys at Enron and WorldCom combined. Having escaped prosecution, Hall is holed up on his massive Pennsylvania farm and Dortmunder, as usual, has his eyes on the big prize: Hall’s vintage wheels.

Listener Opinions

    " This book was ok. I read it because I got it for a gift. Nothing too exciting about it but a good way to waste some time I guess. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Grandma Judy | 2/10/2014

    " Started out a little slow, but turned out to be a pretty good book. Written from the perspective of two groups of "bad guys", who each planned to get even with a man they both detested, and an ending that shows that crime still doesn't pay. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Chris | 1/29/2014

    " All the Dortmunder novels are hilarious. But don't get too caught up in the outlandish exploits of its characters and deadpan cheek of Westlake to know that behind all the comedic talent is a man with a dead-on point of view about things and this life. "

    " F One of the very funny Dortmunder gang books, John Dortmunder and his inept gang hire out as servants to con a rich man. Black humor "
