Westlake's best book
I have read most of Westlake's books and enjoyed them. This one tops them all -- it is a hilarious satire on reality shows. The gang signs up to do a reality show about them doing a heist, with unpredictable results. Narrator does a fabulous job -- thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end.

Dortmunder's last outing and it is a great one
While this is one of my favorite Dortmunder books so far, I write this with a bit of sadness given Donald E. Westlake is no longer with us and likely this was the last of his books.
In an odd twist for the Dortmunder novels, the gang is asked to be part of a reality television series. What could have been a really bad book (I thought the worst concerning some of the plot points), the characters stick to their negligent ways and the TV Series turns into an opportunity for the theives to steal something more worthwhlie than airtime.
Without giving the end away, I can tell you that the book holds true to all the other Dortmunder novels and the ending left me with a smile on my face.
