Good Behavior: A Dortmunder Novel, Book 6 | [Donald E. Westlake]

Good Behavior: A Dortmunder Novel, Book 6

It was supposed to be a simple caviar heist. Dortmunder is almost in the building when the alarm sounds, forcing him up the fire escape and onto the roof. He leaps onto the next building, smashing his ankle and landing in the den of the worst kind of creature he can imagine: nuns.

Publisher's Summary

It was supposed to be a simple caviar heist. Dortmunder is almost in the building when the alarm sounds, forcing him up the fire escape and onto the roof. He leaps onto the next building, smashing his ankle and landing in the den of the worst kind of creature he can imagine: nuns.

Although decades removed from his Catholic orphanage, Dortmunder still trembles before the sisters’ habits. But these nuns are kinder than the ones he grew up with. They bandage his wound, let him rest, and don’t call the cops - for a price. The father of the youngest member of their order, disgusted by their vow of silence, has kidnapped his daughter, locked her in a tightly guarded penthouse apartment, and is attempting to convince her to renounce her faith. The nuns ask Dortmunder to rescue the girl. It’s an impossible assignment - but one he cannot refuse.

What the Critics Say

"Dortmunder is back - hurrah! Brilliantly done." (The New York Times Book Review)

"[Westlake’s] most durable character.... Whatever can go wrong in the man’s elaborate attempts at larceny invariably does, and in the most amusing and unexpected ways possible." (Los Angeles Times)

    Story
    "One of the best in the Dortmunder series."

    I enjoy the whimsical series about career criminal Dortmunder and his doing right by attempting wrongdoing. This is one of the most amusing of his capers, and his ability to escape from tight spots is seriously challenged. I found the narrator pleasant to listen to.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's a truly fun listen. Definitely one full day of pleasure. So much more humor in this one, not to mention a good story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Good Behavior?

    The nun choir scene. I know it's been done before but it never seizes to amaze me how hysterical that scene was to me. The reader did a good job helping to visualize it.


    What does Brian Holsopple bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He found his pace in this one. So, so much better than the previous one. I wish he could do it over with this enthusiasm and control of the characters.
