About the Author
Lawrence Block is one of the most widely recognized names in the mystery genre. He has been named a Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America and is a four-time winner of the prestigious Edgar and Shamus Awards, as well as a recipient of prizes in France, Germany, and Japan. He received the Diamond Dagger from the British Crime Writers' Association—only the third American to be given this award. He is a prolific author, having written more than fifty books and numerous short stories, and is a devoted New Yorker and an enthusiastic global traveler.--This text refers to an alternate Mass Market Paperback edition.
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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

So much for explaining the concept of the series. The Burglar in the Closet is the second book in the series. I strongly suggest that you begin the series by reading Burglars Can't Be Choosers. Each story in the series adds information and characters in a way that will reduce your pleasure of the others if read out of order. Although, I originally read them out of order and liked them well enough. I'm rereading them now in order, and like it much better this way. The Burglar Who Liked to Quote Kipling comes next in the series.Read more ›

While I do love Lawrence Block and his Bernie Rhodenbarr series, I found this piece to be not one of his best works. Read morePublished on Sept. 27 2001 by T
This book really rates about 2 1/2 stars. The book was enjoyable to read and the character is likeable, however I thought you could see the ending coming for way too long. Read morePublished on Aug. 15 2000 by Mark S. Winger
