©1969 Donald E. Westlake; (P)2008 BBC Audiobooks America
Westlake is one of the funniest crime writers around, and this old gem is still funny. But, as good as the writing is, I have to hand it to the reader, who brings the narrator and all the characters to life so wonderfully.
Definitely one of the best readings I've heard yet.
This is my 5th or 6th Westlake book and they were fun. This book was too, but any of the others offered by AUDIBLE are better. More fully crafted.
More story, more characters, more background on characters.
Mr. Thorne was excellent. Even his women characters.
I am not a literary surgeon, but would have ADDED characters.
Westlake and Thorne are excellent overall, but this could be skipped.
