Strangely compelling, unimaginable plot; but Archer has imagined it. Amusing and enjoyable main characters with unbelievable new players; but Archer believed in them. But the whole thing is wackier than a 1950s comedy sketch. I've read five of the Crime Caper books and I think I'm done...this is over the top fantasy. Time for me to return to Jack Reacher and Kinsey Milhone and Deborah Knott and sanity... Good bye and good luck to Davis Way and the Cole family.
