Best-selling author Lawrence Block exposes the wickedly exciting double life of Bernie Rhodenbarr - respectable bookseller by day and notorious burglar by night. In The Burglar Who Studied Spinoza, Bernie applies philosophy to match wits with a wily murderer and a few too many burglars. Bernie and his dog-grooming partner in crime, Carolyn, are planning the perfect crime. Tonight, they will rob a brownstone while the well-heeled owners are out of town with their vicious watch dog. But when Bernie painstakingly picks the lock, they discover somebody has already emptied the house - except for a valuable coin almost too hot to handle. Lawrence Block's finely-crafted plots and well-drawn characters have earned him three Edgar Awards and the title of Grand Master. With his deep, gravelly-toned narration, Richard Ferrone provides the perfect voice for the book-loving thief and his sophisticated friends as they land in one hilarious scrape after another.

The next day, a dead body is found in the brownstone, the victim of what Bernie believes to be a third burglary. With police investigating his nocturnal activities, and a rare coin to fence, Bernie must clear his name and catch a killer.... "

    " Bernie and his friend Carolyn break into a house to find that someone has already robbed it that night. They open the safe and steal a valuable coin. Of course from there things go downhill...once again Bernie is suspected of murder. Seems that Bernie is better at solving homicides than actually getting away with burglary. Not my favorite in the series. "
