Lawrence Sanders was a prolific author of over thirty-five crime novels including “The Anderson Tapes” and “The First Deadly Sin,” both made into films. Published in 1981, “Caper” is a fascinating study on how far one would go to save a career. Jannie Sheen is a bestselling mystery writer who has written bestsellers under various pseudonyms. Her work has become stale and unrealistic. Jannie’s publisher rejects her latest submission, telling her she needs to add realism to her storyline. She decides, along with her best friend, Dick Fleming, to plan a real robbery, enlisting a gang and coming up with a full proof plan, and then calling the entire event off just before the robbery is to take place.
Only one problem.
The men she enlists like the plan too much, and even after they discover who she really is they force her and her buddy Dick to go along with the robbery. The heist does not go as planned, and the gang is soon on the run.
The story is sharply told and only improves as it goes on. From the streets of New York City to the backwoods of Georgia and down to Florida you’re on the road with an exciting and fun read.
