Acclaimed New York Times best-selling author Lawrence Block returns with the extraordinary Bernie Rhodenbarr. Antiquarian bookseller by day, burglar by night, Bernie has an innate knack, a gift, for getting into places designed to keep him out.

Bernie is a gentleman who knows and loves his territory, the gloriously diverse streets of Manhattan; a connoisseur who surrounds himself with the finer things in life, including his tailless Manx tabby, Raffles, and good friends like his neighbor, Carolyn. In fact, it's a friend that gets him in his latest jam. Bernie is asked for a favor, a neat, uncomplicated bit of vengeful larceny that will reap a tidy profit, an offer the intrepid thief can't refuse.

A few days before the crime, Bernie gets restless. What does a burglar do to change his mood? Go on the prowl. This bit of prowling lands Bernie in a pile of trouble that includes four murders and the burglary of his own home. Caught in the center of a deadly mystery, he must use his wits and wiles to connect the dots and add up the coincidences. Because if Bernie doesn't catch a killer, he'll lose not only his freedom but his life.

Infused with the rich atmosphere of New York City and filled with a smart, charming cast of characters headed by the stylish Bernie, The Burglar on the Prowl is an engaging and delightfully suspenseful tale sure to be savored by Block fans old and new.

    " You know the drill...Bernie is a burglar and gets accused for something he didn't do. He must solve the mystery to keep himself out of trouble. Lots of coincidences in this book and the solving of the crime was way out there. "

    " Listened to this on audio while I exercise and do housework. This one is definitely my last of these. It was too far fetched and bizaar. Bernie knew too much not in evidence. "

    " coincidence is a theme, but still.... "

    " For me, this Burglar book was forgettable. I haven't read the entire series, maybe half, but this entry just felt too familiar. Usually I like Bernie and Block, but in TBOTP I found them both tired. "
