Another witty book from this author.
Its not just any bone. It's a femur. An 800 year old
femur. An 800-year-old femur of a 16-year_old girl who lust happened to have been killed and eaten by her own family. Then the Church made her a Saint. Then John Dortmunder stole the bone. Twice. /
Don't ask why two European nations have been fighting
like dogs over this bone. Don't ask how Dortmunder's gang of honorable crooks, from master driver Stan Murch to man - mountain Tiny Bulcher, got caught red-handed with the bone and were plunged into the middle of an international incident. Don't ask, because you don't need to. John Dortmunder has all the answers, and this time he's about to parlay a very old femur into an act of beautiful, larcenous revenge - one that will cut right to the bone .. .

A truly manic burst of fun
a Mixmaster plot full of druggings and
muggings, imprisonments and torture, art
theft and blackmail, not to mention an
arsenal of puns. Chicago Tribune
Merely wonderful. .. no one's touch is as quixotically cockeyed as Westlake's, no one.
can keep you chuckling as continuously.

Dortmunder and friends help Tiny's ethnic associates in another hilarious burglary romp. If you haven't yet read Dormunder, this is a great place to start.
