Praise

“The novel offers so many gifts to the reader—wonderful characters; a wide-eyed, goofy sense of humor; some delightfully hysterical wordplay—that the publisher has done readers an enormous favor by bringing it back into print.” — Booklist starred review

“A bright reprint from 1974 that shows [Westlake] working the field in which he remains unrivaled: the comic caper in which Murphy’s law reigns supreme…Fans of Westlake’s Dortmunder series, which got started around the same time with The Hot Rock (1970), will appreciate the author’s consummate blending of comedy and suspense, often within the same sentence, and rejoice that more Westlakes are slated for resurrection.”
–Kirkus Review

“Fans both old and new will be tickled.” Publishers Weekly

“Donald E. Westlake at his funniest and his most ingenious…not to be missed” — The Violent World of Parker

“Pick up this well-written, exquisitely plotted and, yes, really funny caper novel and see what all of the excitement was and is about.” – BookReporter

“a fast, funny romp of a story, virtually “unputdownable.” – Anthony Cardno blog review

“Like all of the best Westlake books, this one careens along like a cyclist on meth.”  — GrouchyGrammarian.com

“thoroughly entertaining little gem” – Bookgasm
