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. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
