    I read something that Lawrence Block wrote about this. I think this was one of Westlake's very early books, and I can't remember why, but it was put in a desk drawer and never published, and if I remember right, Block loved the book and tried to get Westlake to publish it.

However, it quickly becomes clear that this is, at a minimum, set in the past. I'm guessing early '60s by the prices cited. And this leads me to speculate that it is actually an older unpublished book by Westlake, not a recent one. Not that that's a problem. I love Westlake's early '60s books. I'm just curious. Anyone know when it was actually written? Charles? And if it's old, why hadn't it been published before.
