Lawrence Block's talent for creating colorful characters, sophisticated dialog, and engaging atmosphere has earned him many awards: the title of Grand Master, three Edgar Awards, four Shamus Awards, and a Nero Wolfe Award. One of his most popular series follows the adventures of the suave bookseller and crook, Bernie Rhodenbarr.

Bernie's sweetheart has dumped him. But although his heart is broken, he hasn't lost his love for fine books - or for an occasional discrete burglary. So Bernie takes off for a snowy winter weekend at a country inn that just happens to have a rare, signed first edition of The Big Sleep in its library. It's not long, however, before Bernie's ex-girlfriend arrives with her new husband, a body is found in the library, and the book disappears. Bernie must sort out a tricky tangle of clues if he has any hope of nabbing the priceless edition for himself. Narrator Richard Ferrone captures Bernie's cool demeanor and his flair for perfect timing. Download and start listening now!

    " 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. "
