The Pequod Review:
Get Real is Donald Westlake's fourteenth and last Dortmunder novel, published one year after his death. The story is an ingenious one, as Dortmunder and the gang agree to participate in a reality TV show during which time they will rob the production company for its prize money. It all comes together in highly satisfying fashion, and the setting provides Westlake the opportunity to get in playful digs at the TV industry. This is another solid Dortmunder, and a worthy final chapter to a great writer's career.
