John Dortmunder leaves jail with ten dollars, a train ticket, and no way to make money save for his good, clean name.

John Dortmunder leaves jail with ten dollars, a train ticket, and no way to make money save for his good, clean name.

His friend Kelp picks him up in a stolen Cadillac and speeds away from Sing-Sing, telling the story of a $500,000 emerald that they just have to steal. On their ride back to the city, Kelp lays out the plan. It’s not a simple heist, but after a few years in the clink, Dortmunder could use a challenge.

Adapted into the 1972 film starring Robert Redford and George Segal, this thrilling, often hilarious caper is the seminal work of fiction by a true master of the craft―and one of the classic crime novels of the twentieth century.

About the Author:

Donald E. Westlake (1933-2008) wrote over a hundred novels under his own name and pseudonyms. Many of his books have been made into movies, including The Hunter, which was filmed as Point Blank; the 1999 smash hit Payback; and the 2013 movie Parker. The winner of the three Edgar Awards, he was named a Mystery Writers of America Grand Master, the highest honor bestowed by the society, in 1993.

Review:

“Westlake’s novel comes awesomely close to the ultimate in comic, big-caper novels; it’s so filled with action and imagination.” —The New York Times Book Review “Westlake is a master hand at the running gag this Westlake brought on such a case of the laughing bends that I required decompression.” —The Washington Post “[Westlake’s] most durable character. Whatever can go wrong in the man’s elaborate attempts at larceny invariably does, and in the most amusing and unexpected ways possible.” —Los Angeles Times
