"Nobody does comic capers better than Westlake. This one unfolds with...cinematic energy." (Publishers Weekly)
"William Dufris has a high old time with the large and disparate cast of characters, including Dortmunder's merry band and an alcoholic traveling salesman. He even gives voice to one of the venture capitalists before and after a broken jaw." (AudioFile)
Boring, poorly plotted, no sense of pacing. The jokes fall flat.
The narration really doesn't help--monotone, and some of the characters, even quite important ones, are indistinguishable from one another. The women, in particular, sound almost alike, and this is yet another male narrator who can't seem to read a female dialogue without sounding like he's mocking the woman in question.
The plot weaves and twists in the usual hilarious Westlake fashion, with all your favorite Dortmunder characters.
