Great writing. Great characters. The plot requires too much stretch for anyone not already a fan.

This is an abridged version of the book but the cover does note "Abridgement approved by the Author". It did seem like they did a good job--much better than some abridgements I've listened to.

Great one in the series, I like them all, and they combine humor with mystery with the Block style. Lighter than Scudder, but well worth the read.

It seemed like it would be a simple heist -- just pull some cash from a wall safe -- but complications ensue. And thatlovable burglar Bernie Rhodenbarr unexpectedly finds himself immersed in a plot to find a Latvian bad guy. There are so many subplots that it isn't always easy to keep up with them. But Bernie manages to tie all the loose ends together by the last page.
