Synopsis: Near Fine in a Very Good jacket. See scans and description. Signed and inscribed by Westlake. New York: M. Evans & Co., Inc., 1974. First Edition/First Printing. Signed and inscribed by Westlake to noted collector Jeffrey Hansen on the title page. Octavo, 275 pp. Red cloth-backed brown paper boards, gilt and red spine lettering, pictorial jacket. Near Fine; light shelfwear, no salient flaws. Unclipped jacket shows one crease, rubbing, a little roughening at spine ends and wear line at hinge. Near Fine book in a solid Very Good jacket. 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
