I recently read another funny novel by Donald Westlake, Watch Your Back!, and I can recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor. Though nominally in the thriller genre, this entrant in the Dortmunder series manages to combine convincing character development with a plausible story line (well… somewhat plausible) and a hilarious plot. Things go wrong, things go right, it’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys — all in all, it’s a well-written page-turner that’s non-stop fun. If you like this sort of thing, read it! If you don’t, stay away.
