Somebody Owes Me Money: A Hard Case Crime Novel | [Donald E. Westlake]

Somebody Owes Me Money: A Hard Case Crime Novel

Cab driver Chet Conway was hoping for a good tip from his latest fare, the sort he could spend. But what he got was a tip on a horse race; which might have turned out okay, except that when he went to collect his winnings, Chet found his bookie lying dead on the living room floor. Chet knows he had nothing to do with it.

Publisher's Summary

Cab driver Chet Conway was hoping for a good tip from his latest fare, the sort he could spend. But what he got was a tip on a horse race; which might have turned out okay, except that when he went to collect his winnings, Chet found his bookie lying dead on the living room floor. Chet knows he had nothing to do with it - but just try explaining that to the cops, to the two rival criminal gangs who each think Chet's working for the other, and to the dead man's beautiful sister, who has flown in from Las Vegas to avenge her brother's murder.

    "Great reading of a hilarious novel"

    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.

    Story
    "Westlake is peerless, but this, not his best."
    Would you try another book from Donald E. Westlake and/or Stephen Thorne?

    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.


    What could Donald E. Westlake have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    More story, more characters, more background on characters.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Stephen Thorne?

    Mr. Thorne was excellent. Even his women characters.


    What character would you cut from Somebody Owes Me Money?

    I am not a literary surgeon, but would have ADDED characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Westlake and Thorne are excellent overall, but this could be skipped.
