TRUMPED!

Don't cross Dortmunder. Not even it you're a billionaire tycoon. Especially if you're a billionaire tycoon. Because Dortmunder has his code of honor, and Max Fairbanks, master of the universe, has just crossed over the line.
Farbanks's crime? Interrupting Dortmunder in the middle of a robbery was one thig, but having the audacity to seal the robber's lucky ring—right under the nose of the police—was simply too much. Now, while Fairbanks is laughung all the way to his next board meeting, Dortmunder is shaking the cops and putting together a crew. The thief and his gang are aiming straight for Fairbanks's many plush residences, from Manhattan to Las Vegas. On by one, they're going to rob Max Fairbanks blind, until they get that lucky ring...

”Outrageously irreverent, ingenious, implausible, and impossible inventive. Encore!”

7 out of 10

Once again an entertaining Dortmunder book. This time we follow John Dortmunder on his quest to get his ring back from Max Fairbanks. Obviously more than one attempt is needed to accomplish this - and somehow the plans get bigger and bigger. Let's just say that it's not a good idea to anger John Dortmunder if you happen to own a casino...

The book goes next to erpax. Happy reading!

Paljon kiitoksia sekä haasteesta että palkinnosta, myntti! Sain Dortmunderin vapautuspussissa, mutta luulen, että kirja kulkee vielä seuraavaksikin kontrolloidusti.

Varmaankin monikäänteisin Dortmunder, jonka olen lukenut. Paljon konnia ja harhautusoperaatioita. Konnatkin joutuivat uhrin rooliin, ja onnensormuksen teho tuntui vähintään kyseenalaiselta muistakin kuin lukijasta. Lopussa, yhtenä niistä vuoden kolmesta mahdollisesta aurinkoisesta päivästä Dortmunderin asunnossa, taisi kaikki olla aika hyvin ja jotain olennaista selvinnyt sormuksenkin suhteen.
