    Story
    "As usual, corny but very funny."

    You will either like these corny mysteries and characters or you won't. I do, and I found this to be one of the funniest in the series. Richard Ferrone does an excellent job of giving voices and accents to the different main characters.

    Story
    "Welcome back, Bernie!"

    I swear Lawrence Block has revived and written more material since his 'retirement' than ever before. And don't think that, just because I've been a Bernie fan for years, I gave this book an automatic 5. There's always that chance of disappointment.
    I'm glad to say that Bern and Carolyn are as fresh (and apparently young) and up to mischief as ever. Plenty of twists and ***s and pretty upbeat, considering it's Bernie and Carolyn. Also, I learned some stuff that I'll never need to know, but don't mind knowing anyway.
    Richard Ferrone does a fine job of handing a handful of characters and is very easy to listen to.

    This was a real gift from Mr. Block.

    "A new direction for Bernie Rodenbarr"
    What did you love best about The Burglar Who Counted the Spoons?

    The story was even more complex than the usual Bernie Rodenbarr tales.


    Any additional comments?

    A very funny story.

    Story
    "Intelligent and Charming"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Mr. Rodenbahr is intriguing as a character, conflicted in his motivations. This is an intelligent and well written continuation of Block's burglar series that will not disappoint. The author draws you into the story and keeps you there with a little smirk on your face.
