"Bernie's tried to go legit by opening up a secondhand bookstore down in Greenwich Village but still can't resist his passion: stealing things. Especially when the price is right, and this time it most certainly is. Here's what Bernie's got to do: pilfer a rare Kipling edition and make off with a bundle." "That's the easy part. The hard part, Bernie finds, is returning the priceless volume to his employer. His instructions are to turn the book over to a lovely femme fatale, but before Bernie can, the femme is suddenly a fatality. And of course the cops are close behind." "With best pal, Carolyn, at his side, and a surprising ally found in police detective Ray Kirschmann, Bernie tries to get himself out of the stickiest wrong-side-of-the-law jam of his life. It will take all the tricks and tools of the burgling trade to uncover a clever plot by some very dangerous men. But dangerous is nothing when you're dealing with the hilarious hijinks of Bernie Rhodenbarr."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

A bit formulaic, but if you enjoy Block's Bernie Rhodenbarr books, you'll enjoy this one too.
