Bernie Rhodenbarr is a burgular. His dentist knows it and wants a favor. As Bernie prowls the dentist's ex-wife's home, liberating her jewelry, he finds himself locked in her closet. Things go downhill from there.

This was a fun read. I have really enjoyed this series so far! I thought the book was going to be predictable but it wasn't at all. I think its great how Bernie makes fun of cops and makes them all seem like complete idiots. I also enjoy how he is James Bond-ish in the sense that he has a different woman in each book. I can't wait to read the next book in the series! :)
Bernie was busy burgling the Gramercy Park apartment of his dentist's estranged wife Crystal (at the dentist's request, of course!). He was leisurely tucking cash, diamonds and other jewelry in his briefcase when he hears Crystal's keys in the front door. He hides in the closet and becomes hopelessly tangled in a rack of designer dresses. By the time he gets free, his briefcase is gone and Crystal is dead. Now Bernie is wanted for murder!
