Hapless criminal John Dortmunder returns in another rollicking tale of disorganized crime from Grand Master of Mystery Donald E. Westlake. It's the score of a lifetime: easy access to a lavish New York City apartment, hordes of valuables, and an absentee owner avoiding the lawyers of his unhappy ex-wives. But before they pull the job, Dortmunder's crew is startled to find their beloved gin joint, the OJ, in the clutches of the Mafia—who consider it perfect for a little fraud, courtesy of a nice big fire. For tactical and highly superstitious reasons, the fate of the OJ is even more important to the crew than the enormous score. Now, Dortmunder and his gang are determined to split their time, fighting the mob and robbing the rich simultaneously.

“Westlake is in fine form…[he] renders characters that are delightfully askew…The adventures are always rich in the company of Westlake’s men of steal.” Booklist (starred review)
“A boxcar load of quirky characters. William Dufris brings all his skills to this Westlake entertainment…while delivering a well-paced narration.” AudioFile
