Staff Reviews

"Originally concieved as a story for his hard-as-nails detective
Parker series, Westlake discovered that the story– a diamond that has to
be stolen over and over– was too silly for that series. He changed
Parker to Dortmunder and not only created a second popular series
character, but popularized the comic caper novel."

— Scott M.


The Hot Rock introduces John Archibald Dortmunder, the thief whose capers never quite come off, as he and his convict friends plot to steal the fabulous Balaboma Emerald.
