I agree and according to Gores the basic facts are true. With it Gores expands the scope of his fairly grim his DKA repo men procederals.

 It's another book where Westlake and Gores have their character make brief appearances in each others books. The parallel Dortmunder book is Drowned Hopes which is by far my favorite in the Dortmunder series. I guess the Gores - Westlake/ Start friendship is long -lasting , Did people notice Interface's dedication? "For that Stark villain, Parker -- because he's such a beautiful human being" Mark
