Sintesi dell'editore

Hapless criminal John Dortmunder returns in another rollicking tale of disorganized crime from Grand Master of Mystery Donald E. Westlake.

It's the score of a lifetime: easy access to a lavish New York City apartment, hordes of valuables, and an absentee owner avoiding the lawyers of his unhappy ex-wives. But before they pull the job, Dortmunder's crew is startled to find their beloved gin joint, the OJ, in the clutches of the Mafia - who consider it perfect for a little fraud, courtesy of a nice big fire. For tactical and highly superstitious reasons, the fate of the OJ is even more important to the crew than the enormous score.

Now, Dortmunder and his gang are determined to split their time, fighting the mob, and robbing the rich simultaneously.

Dortmunder is Fun

I think I have listened to all of the Dortmunder novels. (Unfortunately, they aren't available on Audible!). The Dortmunder character is a hoot. If you enjoy dry sarcasm, you'll like Dortmunder. This was not the best Dortmunder that I've read, but it was still fun.

Westlake is one of my favorite writers

Watch Your Back was not my favorite of this series of books. It was still worth reading.

Arnie's revenge???

It makes me sad that Donald Westlake is no longer with us so that he could keep providing us with Dortmunder hilarious capers. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. All the usual suspects are here plus the outrageous Arnie Albright., doing his best not to offend anyone. The narrator, William Dufris, does an outstanding job. My only disappointment is that it is over. Recommended for anyone who loves to laugh and enjoys adventures with fun, human characters. Enjoy!

Not Great

What did you like best about Watch Your Back!? What did you like least?

The story just didn't come together. I think I hear the whole book three or four times trying to figure out what I wasn't getting out of the story or reading. Too, Too much dialogue that didn't always make much sense.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Well, what else would we expect?????

What three words best describe William Dufris’s performance?

Just so, so

Do you think Watch Your Back! needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

If the first didn't much make sense, how will a part 2 make sense.

Money wasted

25 minutes was as much as I could stand. I have no idea if the story would be any good as I was totaly distracted by the, "He said", "She said" phrase every 30 seconds to the point when I was only listening for that same phrase again. If this is Westlakes style he should stick to the day job. Can I have my money back please.
