Pub date 1st January 1976

From the "master of the rolling scam", here is a hilarious crime caper set in New York. A hot hustler is searching for a million-dollar Aztec sculpture that is accidentally mixed with cheap plaster copies. From Harlem to Greenwich, a motley cast chases the lost piece.

The 1997 French Comedy ‘La divine poursuite’ was an adaptation of this Westlake novel.
