caper

“The subgenre in which the narrative interest is centered on a person or a group of people attempting to steal something, break in somewhere, or otherwise interfere with a seemingly impregnable stronghold has become known as a caper. There are comic capers and serious capers. Donald E. Westlake writes the former under his own name in his novels about John Dortmunder; he writes the latter as Richard Stark in Parker novels” (Source: DeAndrea,  401).
