On a literary landscape filled with cunning criminal masterminds, Donald E. Westlake's John Dortmunder is in a league of his own. With no scam too outrageous to contemplate, and no plan too simple to go wrong, this quirky career thief has stolen everything from money buried under a reservoir to a bank-the whole bank. Now the ultimate repeat offender returns in a first-time collection of short stories that prove that just like bagels and donuts, with Dortmunder it's always better by the dozen ... Thieves' Dozen.
Mystery NOTES Donald E. Westlake's irresistible Thieves' Dozen collects all 10 tales of his hapless thief John Dortmunder, most of which appeared in Playboy. The author provides an amusing introduction as well as an 11th tale, original to this volume, that features his crook hero under a pseudonym or at least a character a lot like Dortmunder.(Apr) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
