The Burglar in the Library - Lawrence Block

An inordinate amount of time and dialogue spent setting up Bernie's English Country House Mystery...

The Burglar who Studied Spinoza, Lawrence Block
The Burglar Who Studied Spinoza - Lawrence Block

So I just picked up all the Burglar Books the 2nd hand bookshop in Fredericton had, which was the first and two other random members of the series. Circumstances have changed a bit between the first book and this; the supporting cast is completely different apart from Ray the corrupt cop, Bernie runs a 2nd hand bookshop of his own (a money-losing business) and seems to be less sexist. On the other hand he still burgles and still ends up having to solve a murder...

 

Bernie's adventures are still amusing but in this example are also a bit confusing...how did not end up arrested, again?

Well, well! Rhodenbarr commits a burglary and ends up involved in a murder investigation - again! One has to ignore the preposterousness in order to enjoy these.
