Crossover Cover: A Likely Story

The Italian restaurant Tre Mafiosi appears. This eatery can also be seen in Westlake’s Dortmunder novel What’s So Funny?, as well as another non-series novel by Westlake, Money for Nothing. Since the Dortmunder books take place in the CU, so do A Likely Story and Money for Nothing.

  1. A Likely Story is one few Westlake novels that isn't a crime novel. I think there is a brief part about a mugging and that's it. Really, it was a satire on the publishing industry and a story about family relations. It also includes the immortal line:

    "My girlfriend is jealous of my wife!"
