About the Author
A Mystery Writers of America Grand Master, Lawrence Block is a four-time winner of the Edgar Allan Poe and Shamus Awards, as well as a recipient of prizes in France, Germany, and Japan. The author of more than fifty books and numerous short stories, he is a devout New Yorker who spends much of his time traveling.
This is the second in the popular Bernie Rhodenbarr series, and once again the feckless New York City burglar blunders into a murder scene. Getting himself out of this situation while chasing a woman or two occupies him throughout. Adams Morgan narrates in such a way that he disappears into the background. He has an expressive American voice, and he imparts the rueful lightness called for by the first-person point of view. His characterizations are entirely a matter of pacing. It's all nicely done and understated. D.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
