Somebody stole it from its museum home in South America and smuggled it through U.S. Customs in a shipment of plastic imitations. But the wrong one got delivered, and the million dollar statue, mixed with the 15 copies, is somewhere in New York. Jerry Manelli is searching for it, as are Wall Street financiers, New Jersey union thugs, Manhattan aristocrats, college professors and PR men, liberated women and unliberated wives, tough guys and conmen, and sharpshooters of every kind.
From Harlem to Greenwich Village, from Long Island to Connecticut, the motley group races in and around New York in this comic adventure of the 1970s.

Not ideal for casual listening
It's very a very funny and sometimes hilarious story and the narration is very good. However, the great number of characters makes it difficult to follow if like me you listen to audiobooks mostly while driving and walking errands.

Too Many Characters for Audio!
I listen while walking the dogs, or vacuuming, or doing other household/yard work tasks.
I could not keep the multiple characters straight without REAL concentration... which of course, I did not have. The characters are listed in the beginning but I could not reference that chapter each time I questioned, who was that?
Luckily, I have listened to many Westlake stories and love him as an author.
If this had been my first, there would not have been a second.
But since I do so enjoy the Dortmunder series, I will keep up with the goal of listening to all his novels.
