Publisher's Summary

Cab driver Chet Conway was hoping for a good tip from his latest fare, the sort he could spend. But what he got was a tip on a horse race; which might have turned out okay, except that when he went to collect his winnings, Chet found his bookie lying dead on the living room floor. Chet knows he had nothing to do with it - but just try explaining that to the cops, to the two rival criminal gangs who each think Chet's working for the other, and to the dead man's beautiful sister, who has flown in from Las Vegas to avenge her brother's murder.

Great reading of a hilarious novel

Westlake is one of the funniest crime writers around, and this old gem is still funny. But, as good as the writing is, I have to hand it to the reader, who brings the narrator and all the characters to life so wonderfully.

Definitely one of the best readings I've heard yet.

A favorite LOL romp

If you could sum up Somebody Owes Me Money in three words, what would they be?

Funny, romp, timeless

Who was your favorite character and why?

Clearly Chester, our mild mannered hero, full of humor and patience. Smart but not brilliant. I just truly enjoy a protagonist who acts like a real person, even in an improbably story.

What about Stephen Thorne’s performance did you like?

Perfect inflections and interpretation. He nails and brings out all the nuances of the humor and characters. All are individual, very clear, starkly identifiable, and overall, he just breathes life into every single character perfectly.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A hot tip turns into a wild ride.

Any additional comments?

I couldn't have asked for a more perfect reading of this humorous novel. I am so impressed with this narrator. I wish he could read all my favorite books.
