Vintage Donald Westlake -- plot amd motivation twists galore. Too bad it is his last.

I disagree with nitetrain. I have liked this whole series and feel sad that it is over with Westlake's death last year. It is true that nothing particularly exciting happens in the story, but that is part of the charm. It is about the characters and how Westlakes invests them with so much personality even though they hardly do or say anything.

"John," Kelp said, "the next time there's gonna be money in that place, it's gonna be OUR money, from England. You wanna go steal your own money?"

"Money from wages," Dortmunder said, "is not the same as the same money from theft. Money from theft is purer. There's no indentured servitude on it, no knuckling under to whatever anybody else wants, no obedience. It isn't yours because you swapped it for your own time and work, it's yours because you TOOK it."
