Summary
Kelp has a plan, and John Dortmunder knows that means trouble. His friend Kelp is a jinx, and his schemes, no matter how well intentioned, tend to spiral quickly out of control. But this one, Kelp swears, is airtight. He read it in a book. In county lock-up for a traffic charge, Kelp came across a library of trashy novels by an author named Richard Stark. The hero is a thief named Parker whose plans, unlike Kelp and Dortmunder's, always work out. In one, Parker orchestrates a kidnapping so brilliant that, Kelp thinks, it would have to work in real life. Though offended that his usual role as planner has been usurped, Dortmunder agrees to try using the novel as a blueprint. Unfortunately, what's simple on the page turns complex in real life, and there is no book to guide him through the madness he's signed on for

Summary
It was easy, Andy Kelp said. It was all in the book, he said, a crime novel by some guy named Richard Stark, that described the perfect caper. Best of all, the criminals got away with it in the end. John Dortmunder, career burglar, has his doubts. Dortmunder is right. It isn't all in the book: not the suffocating Mickey Mouse masks, not the car that won't fit inside the truck, not Murch's Mom losing her place when she reads the ransom demand over the phone, and especially not the precocious kidnap victim named Jimmy Harrington. The FBI starts breathing down their necks and the book goes out the window--along with Jimmy, the loot, and Dortmunder's great expectations for a happy, cash-filled ending
