The Pequod Review:
In Cops and Robbers, Donald Westlake's sixteenth novel under his own name, two New York City policemen devise an ingenious plan to steal $10 million of bearer bonds. Westlake creates an effective structure where alternating chapters are told in the first-person by each of the two policemen; this allows him to create some real depth of character. The book also features one of the most intricate thefts in any of his books. The plots typically don’t matter for Westlake's crime novels, but better to go into this one not knowing the details.
