1 Dortmunder's Crew
Since they first appeared in Donald E Westlake's "The Hot Rock" in 1970, John Dortmunder and his crew of crooks have attempted more than a dozen capers, in novels and short stories. They're not always successful, but they ARE always hilarious.

2 Donald E Westlake - "Thieves Dozen"
This is a series featuring John Dortmunder, a some-time successful burglar. This quiz is about a series of ten short stories featuring this character. As most of these stories have surprise endings, I will concentrate only on the main plot.

Some sample questions from this category:

* Sometimes I wonder how a group with such differing personalities can have worked together for so long. Who is the good natured, even tempered, optimistic member of the crew? He has a liking for technical gadgets.
* There was something about Dortmunder's 'faithful companion', May, that set her apart from the rest, at least in the first half dozen or so books. What was it?
* Murch's Mom makes an appearance fairly often in the books. What does she do for a living?
* Every job is planned in the back room of the OJ Bar and Grill. What's the name of the bartender there?
* While at the OJ, John and Andy are the 'bourbon and water', and the 'other bourbon and water' (Amsterdam Liquor Store Bourbon "Our Own Brand"). Who is the beer and salt?
