Description
A philosophical yet practical gentleman, Bernie Rhodenbarr possesses many admirable qualities: charm, intelligence, sparkling wit, and unwavering loyalty. Of course, he also has this special talent and a taste for life's finer things. So he's more than willing to perform some vengeful larceny for a friend -- ripping off a smarmy, particularly deserving plastic surgeon -- for fun and a very tidy profit. But during a practice run at another address, Bernie's forced to hide under a bed when the lady of the house returns unexpectedly with the worst kind of blind date in tow. In no time, Bernie's up to his burgling neck in big trouble. Again. And this time it includes his arrest, no less than four murders, and more outrageous coincidences than any self-preserving felon should ever be required to tie together.

In no time, Bernie's up to his burgling neck in big trouble. Again. And this time it includes his arrest, no less than four murders, and more outrageous coincidences than any self-preserving felon should ever be required to tie together., Abridged., Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Lawrence Block returns with the extraordinary Bernie Rhodenbarr. Antiquarian bookseller by day, burglar by night, Bernie has an innate knack, a gift, for getting into places designed to keep him out. Bernie is a gentleman who knows and loves his territory, the gloriously diverse streets of Manhattan; a connoisseur who surrounds himself with the finer things in life, including his tailless Manx tabby, Raffles, and good friends like his neighbor, Carolyn. In fact, it's a friend that gets him in his latest jam. Bernie is asked for a favor -- a neat, uncomplicated bit of vengeful larceny that will reap a tidy profit -- an offer the intrepid thief can't refuse. A few days before the crime, Bernie gets restless. What does a burglar do to change his mood? Go on the prowl. This bit of prowling lands Bernie in a pile of trouble that includes four murders and the burglary of his own home. Caught in the center of a deadly mystery, he must use his wits and wiles to connect the dots and add up the coincidences. Because if Bernie doesn't catch a killer, he'll lose not only his freedom but his life. Infused with the rich atmosphere of New York City and filled with a smart, charming cast of characters headed by the stylish Bernie, The Burglar on the Prowl is an engaging and delightfully suspenseful tale sure to be savored by Block fans old and new., Bernie Rhodenbarr is no ordinary burglar. Smart, sophisticated, and the perfect gentleman, he's cased some of the Big Apple's most fashionable (and expensive) addresses in the name of curiosity, profit, and fun. Bernie steals with style but never simplicity because whenever he gets a craving for a little B&E, trouble can't be far behind. In this long-awaited new installment in the popular series, the legendary Grand Master brings back the intrepid Bernie in a delightfully suspenseful tale that will leave listeners clamoring for more., Block, Lawrence., Digital content provided by hoopla., Electronic books., FIC MYSTERY BLOCK, FIC031000FIC019000, FICTION / Literary, FICTION / Thrillers / General, Includes an excerpt from: The burglar who liked to quote Kipling., Large type books., MWT11442313, MWT11588845, MWT11920863, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Mystery fiction., New York (N.Y.), New York :HarperTorch,[2005], c2004., PS3552.L63B856 2005, Read by Nick Sullivan., Read by the author., Rhodenbarr, Bernie (Fictitious character), Sullivan, Nick, The Burglar on the ProwlLawrence Block., The burglar on the prowl /Lawrence Block., The burglar on the prowlLawrence Block., Thieves, TnLvILSTnLvILSTnLvILS, Unabridged., [United States]:Blackstone Audio, Inc. ,2006., [United States]:Harper Collins Publishers ,2009., [United States]:Harper Collins Publishers,2004., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, eBook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/bsa_9780792743996_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/hpc_9780060783174_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/hpc_9780061806698_180.jpeg, n-us-ny, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text file, texttxt
