Not one of my favorite Parker novels, like when they focus mostly on just him, too much on the secondary characters

Westlake writes so smooth and as usual things don't quite work out for Dortmunder. A perfect read from start to finish

Appealed to by an old co-worker Parker shows up to find the man dead. Others are convinced there is hidden money. Parker doubts it but is sucked into the search.
