Watch Your Back!: A Dortmunder Novel | [Donald E. Westlake]

Watch Your Back!: A Dortmunder Novel

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Dortmunder is Fun"

    I think I have listened to all of the Dortmunder novels. (Unfortunately, they aren't available on Audible!). The Dortmunder character is a hoot. If you enjoy dry sarcasm, you'll like Dortmunder. This was not the best Dortmunder that I've read, but it was still fun.

    "Money wasted"

    25 minutes was as much as I could stand. I have no idea if the story would be any good as I was totaly distracted by the, "He said", "She said" phrase every 30 seconds to the point when I was only listening for that same phrase again. If this is Westlakes style he should stick to the day job. Can I have my money back please.
