See scans. Another tongue-in-cheek endeavor by Westlake, this time the story of a con - in prison for accidentally injuring two congressmen - who hooks up with seven other jailbirds who have a tunnel through which they leave prison when they want to, always returning because they'll need their prisoner status for an alibi when they rob a nearby bank. Blurb scene: Harry, the protagonist, checks the time, jumps out of the bed he's been sharing with his lady love and says, " Holy Christ ! I've got to get back to prison !" L48n
