Winner of multiple Edgar and Shamus Awards, Lawrence Block keeps fans guessing to the end with his rollicking Bernie Rhodenbarr mysteries. In this diverting caper, full-time bookstore owner and part-time burglar Bernie tries to do the right thing for a new friend, only to find himself accused of some terrible wrongs.

All Bernie plans to do is steal some letters. A New York City literary agent is auctioning off her personal correspondence with enigmatic writer Gully Fairborn. Gully's attractive ex-girlfriend has asked Bernie to swipe the letters so she can return them to her old heartthrob. But when Bernie breaks in, the letters are missing, and the literary agent is in bed with no hope of waking up.

With the police watching him very closely, Bernie relies on jiggers of rye and Caroline, his lesbian best friend, to sharpen his deductive skills and find the killer. Narrator Richard Ferrone expertly guides you on a laugh-filled journey through the twists and turns of the clever plot. Download and start listening now!

    " All of the Burglar in the ....... series are just wonderful. The movie with Whoopi Goldberg is loosely based on the series and very funny but bears little relationship to the books. "

    " It was a paperback, I was in Buenos Aires, it was portable. Otherwise I would have put it aside. Bernie just doesn't amuse me, nor did all the rye humor. "

    " Another delightful read from Block. Rodenbarr finds himself helping an acquaintance and being arrested for a murder he didn't commit. Block's droll digressions, witty wordplay and a wonderful ear for dialogue make this twisted plot even more enjoyable. "

    " This was my introduction to Bernie Rhodenbarr and I fell in love. All of the Bernie books I have read have been fast reads that make me chuckle out loud. "
