Publisher Comments:

Bernie Rhodenbarr is actually trying to earn an honest living. It's been an entire year since he's entered anyone's abode illegally to help himself to their valuables. But now an unscrupulous landlord's threat to increase Bernie's rent by 1,000% is driving the bookseller and reformed burglar back to a life of crime — though, in all fairness, it's a very short trip. And when the cops wrongly accuse him of stealing a priceless collection of baseball cards, Bernie's stuck with a worthless alibi since he was busy burgling a different apartment at the time . . . one that happened to contain a dead body locked inside a bathroom.

So Bernie has a dilemma. He can trade a burglary charge for a murder rap. Or he can shuffle all the cards himself and try to find the joker in the deck — someone, perhaps, who believes that homicide is the real Great American Pastime.

Synopsis:

To prove himself innocent of stealing an invaluable baseball card collection, Bernie Rhodenbarr pulls out all his master skills to uncover a scheme he should have been smart enough to avoid.

Lawrence Block has produced another great series, Bernie Rhodenbarr, as a likable, charming, professional burglar in NYC, who gets himself tangled in a seemingly inescapable mystery with himself as the prime suspect. Funny and page turning as Block is a master of the genre. excellent and very entertaining reading.
