Richie and the Rich Bitch by Jonathan Santlofer

by Barb Goffman


From the anthology The Rich and the Dead (Grand Central Publishing, 2011)

If you want something stolen, Richie’s your guy. He can break into anywhere. Steal anything. One day he’s hired to steal some paintings, he gets them, and then the guy who hired him discovers the paintings are fakes. Thus begins an interesting story of Richie and the guy who hired him trying to recoup their due from a family of rich bitches. Don’t read this story if you have an issue with cursing, because it appears in this story so often, you’d think the Sopranos had come back, with bitch as their new favorite word.
