Eluding the law has always been high on Dortmunder's list. But getting caught red-handed is inevitable in his next caper, when a TV producer convinces this thief and his merry gang to star in a reality show that captures their next score. The producer even guarantees to keep the show from being used as evidence against them. They're dubious at first, but the pay's good, so they sign on. A mock-up of the OJ Bar is built in a downtown New York City warehouse. As the gang plans their next move with the cameras rolling, Dortmunder and Kelp sneak onto the roof of their new studio to organize a private enterprise. It will take an ingenious plan to outwit viewers glued to their television sets, but Dortmunder is nothing if not persistent, and he's determined to end this shoot with money in his pockets.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Before Janet Evanovich brought us Stephanie Plum, Don Westlake was the Grand Master of Criminal Laughs with his hilarious novels about professional thief John Dortmunder. Get Real is the fourteenth Dortmunder novel and proves again that Westlake is the King of Clever.” Robert Crais, New York Times bestselling author
“A rollicking crime caper that pulls the pants right off the reality TV industry.” New York Times Book Review
“Delightfully understated…a worthy final word from Westlake…will rouse chuckles from even jaded readers.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“With brilliant restraint and perfectly pitched deadpan dialogue, Westlake keeps his characters dancing precariously along the knife’s edge of absurdity. Reading his ever-more-colorful descriptions…is a sheer delight, only tempered by the knowledge that this is last call at the OJ Bar & Grill.” Booklist (starred review)
“Side-splittingly funny…Westlake will be remembered for his clever commentary on current affairs, his always amusing whimsical characters, and of course his brilliant depiction of modern-day Robin Hoods robbing from the rich and giving to, well, themselves.”  BookPage
