I recommend this story to anyone interested in reading classic noir fiction.
In the Grofield novels, Westlake has a breezy style and believable characters, though the situations they find themselves in are sometimes a little hard to swallow.
Great characterizations, fine writing from Ed McBain (aka Richard Stark, aka Donald Westlake).
Publication date: 1971
