Mystery & Suspense • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Bernie Rodenbarr is a professional burglar. On the side, he owns a used bookstore. Although the police know he's a burglar, they often treat him with the awed deference shown to Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe. Why this should be is not clear, but never mind. In the current case, Bernie commits a profitable burglary, which the police never solve. All sorts of mayhem result from the burglary, which, money in hand, Bernie also brings to a satisfactory resolution. All of the characters are New Yorkers of one stripe or another, and Nick Sullivan does an excellent job of placing them in one or another of the five boroughs. For a male narrator, he is also unusually good with female voices. His rhythm and pace reflect the fast action without exaggerating it. R.E.K.
