John Dortmunder and his merry band of burglars are back for another go at their own version of wealth distribution--the planned burglary of a fabulous art collection from a semi-deserted penthouse apartment. Westlake offers several detours along the way and four--perhaps five--interrelated plots, as well as a boxcar load of quirky characters. William Dufris brings all his skills to this Westlake entertainment. The main characters are from New York and New Jersy, giving Dufris a chance to explore the heights of their accents. He makes each main character a recognizable individual and creates memorable versions of the cameo roles, which range from Club Med staffers to Florida bonefishermen. He also handles women’s voices expertly. All this while delivering a well-paced narration. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
