My favorite Westlake book. Persistence gets you somewhere, but not always a happy ending. Good NYC atmosphere. Interesting characters that most people would like. And yes, funny. flag

Read it, saw the movie, enjoyed both. Westlake keeps slump-shouldered burglar John Dortmunder running through hoops in a funny story. Westlake holds your interest throughout the book.

The Hot Rock is a delightfully funny caper story, or, rather six different capers, as Dortmunder and his team of eccentrics try to get their hands on the rock. Westlake's dialog and pacing are exemplary; this is one of those books where you read for a bit and suddenly realize that twenty or thirty pages have flown by. Highly recommended.
