Summary
It would take a miracle to keep Dortmunder out of jail. Though he cased the electronics store perfectly, the cops surprised him, turning up in the alley just as he was walking out the back door, a television in each hand. Already a two-time loser, without divine intervention he faces a long stretch inside. Then God sends J. Radcliffe Stonewiler, a celebrity lawyer who gets Dortmunder off with hardly any effort at all. Stonewiler was sent by Arnold Chauncey, an art lover with a cash flow problem. He asks the thief to break into his house and make off with a valuable painting in exchange for a quarter of the insurance money. Chauncey has pulled the stunt twice before, so it must look real. He'll give Dortmunder no inside help--a shame since, when this caper spins out of control, he'll need all the help he can get

Summary
The painting was called "Folly Leads Man to Ruin." It was a Veenbes. Dortmunder had never heard of Veenbes, and as for folly--well, Dortmunder had a foolproof plan. He was going to steal the Veenbes from the rich profligate named Chauncey who wanted it stolen--from himself. After the insurance settlement, Chauncey would get his painting back and Dortmunder would get his payoff. Chauncey had hired a hit man to make sure it worked out that way. It would all have gone perfectly, if Dortmunder hadn't gotten stuck in an elevator, and if the painting hadn't gotten lost. Now Dortmunder has a big problem. He has only a few more days to live, unless he can come up with the painting or another foolproof plan
