The critically acclaimed, bestselling author of The Ax and The Hook is back in rare form as he introduces Meehan, a character who keeps the lid from blowing off Washington politics. Meehan, a career thief staring at life without parole, is awaiting sentencing at the Manhattan Correctional Center when he is called to a meeting by someone masquerading as his lawyer. The man, it turns out, represents the presidential reelection campaign committee now finding itself in need of a little professional help. So they outsource Meehan in return for a walk from all pending criminal charges. All he has to do is steal a compromising video tape before the other side springs an October Surprise on the president. A shrewd burglar, Meehan bites—and shows just how easy Watergate would have been had they left it to the professionals.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This novel—top-shelf Westlake stirred with a twist of Thomas—is something to savor. Booklist (starred review)
“Sublime comedy…a crime caper that also gets some nice digs in as political satire.” New York Times Book Review
“[Westlake has a] long-perfected ability to blend incredible smartness with an ever entertaining degree of smart-aleck impudence.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Westlake hooks the reader from the first sentence, maintaining the suspense with unpredictable turnabouts and dead-on descriptions.” Publishers Weekly
“In Westlake’s masterful hands every page delights readers with satirical observations, unexpected twists, and an endless supply of laugh-out-loud zingers.” School Library Journal
