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.

Comical hard case crime!

I liked it a lot, but felt at times it went on for a bit too long.
It wasn't fall over laughing comical. It was smile and wait to see who kills this kid first comical.
