The story is a reasonably good Dortmunder story, but the reading by William Dufris is hands-down awful. While he tries to give each character a distinctive voice, he doesn't maintain that voice - meaning that it becomes impossible to keep track of who's talking. (Also, there's this distracting mystery: Why does Anne Marie, a Kansas native, talk with a deep-south Georgia peach accent?) Worse yet, he tries to be funnier than the material, really hamming it up. This book deserves someone better than Bob the Builder as a narrator...

If you're new to the Dortmunder series, don't read this book. If you've been a fan for years, don't read this book. The ' caper' doesn't start until 2/3 thru the book, then goes nowhere. Very disappointing.
