Snappy dialogue and a plot full of twists and turns blend to make an adventure story with the unlikeliest hero—and the unlikeliest villains! The Last Collection takes the reader into the peculiar side of modern-day Montreal, a big city filled with colorful people such as Solly the Hawk Weisskopf and Big Moishie Mandelberg, loan sharks whose collection methods rely more on ingenuity (such as before-and-after pictures of their victims) than violence; and Artie Kerner, their "mark," whose rare addiction to purchasing expensive but worthless items finally leads him to seek professional help from Dr. Lehman, a psychiatrist only slightly more neurotic than his patients—practicing in an office that resembles a South Sea island, complete with lagoon. The result is a fast-paced satire with an unconventional humor that binds the book from beginning to unmatchable end.
