Happy Ides of March!

To me! Today this book I ordered was delivered.

Famous Author Rob Byrnes sent me the first of Donald E. Westlake's crime caper novels featuring character John Dortmunder, The Hot Rock, and I really liked it. I even found out Robert Redford starred as Dortmunder in the movie based on the book, so I watched it on Netflix. Very early-1970s vibe, not quite as good as the book, but I'm not one to turn down a Robert Redford movie.

I digress.

I decided to read all the Dortmunder novels. I've found a few of them locally and purchased them, but I hope to read them in order. However, some of the older ones are quite pricey when I can find them online. Bank Shot was one of those, until I found it from an online seller at a price so low it felt like I was stealing it. Dortmunder would be proud of me.

So I feel lucky. Luckier than Julius Caesar, at any rate.
