Book #357 (#49 this year): Dirty Money (2008, Donald E Westlake)

I had a little problem with #49. I originally picked out a sci-fi book because I thought it would be a nice change of pace. Unfortunately, it was all plot (mix the nerons and the fabuzons in the klomik chamber to travel across time to the 5th dimension, or some such rot) and no character development. So, what to do? Drop that one and fall back on trustworthy Donald E Westlake (writing as Richard Stark). Now this is real sci-fi. The world that "Parker" inhabits ain't like anything I've ever experienced before (thank God)! A real page-turner and I'm left with a full ten more days to finish #50.
