Publisher's Summary

Hapless criminal John Dortmunder returns in another rollicking tale of disorganized crime from Grand Master of Mystery Donald E. Westlake. It's the score of a lifetime: easy access to a lavish New York City apartment, hordes of valuables, and an absentee owner avoiding the lawyers of his unhappy ex-wives. But before they pull the job, Dortmunder's crew is startled to find their beloved gin joint, the OJ, in the clutches of the Mafia - who consider it perfect for a little fraud, courtesy of a nice big fire. For tactical and highly superstitious reasons, the fate of the OJ is even more important to the crew than the enormous score. Now, Dortmunder and his gang are determined to split their time, fighting the mob, and robbing the rich simultaneously.

Dortmunder is Fun

I think I have listened to all of the Dortmunder novels. (Unfortunately, they aren't available on Audible!). The Dortmunder character is a hoot. If you enjoy dry sarcasm, you'll like Dortmunder. This was not the best Dortmunder that I've read, but it was still fun.

Not Great

What did you like best about Watch Your Back!? What did you like least?

The story just didn't come together. I think I hear the whole book three or four times trying to figure out what I wasn't getting out of the story or reading. Too, Too much dialogue that didn't always make much sense.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Well, what else would we expect?????

What three words best describe William Dufris’s performance?

Just so, so

Do you think Watch Your Back! needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

If the first didn't much make sense, how will a part 2 make sense.
