Bernie Rhodenbarr has fallen in love. Not only that, he’s fallen into a real-life version of THE MALTESE FALCON. After a mysterious woman with an Eastern European accent comes into his antiquarian bookshop, he finds himself involved in mystery, intrigue and murder. Block’s reading of his own work is fast paced, and his sarcastic tone is perfect for Bernie. In the unabridged reading by Frank Muller (Recorded Books), the remaining character voices--especially that of Bernie’s new love--are more distinctive. The longer version allows time for Block to cover and comment on the plots of more than 10 Bogart films which Bernie sees at the annual Greenwich Village Bogart Festival.
