Bernie's sweetheart has dumped him. But although his heart is broken, he hasn't lost his love for fine books - or for an occasional discrete burglary. So Bernie takes off for a snowy winter weekend at a country inn that just happens to have a rare, signed first edition of The Big Sleep in its library. It's not long, however, before Bernie's ex-girlfriend arrives with her new husband, a body is found in the library, and the book disappears. Bernie must sort out a tricky tangle of clues if he has any hope of nabbing the priceless edition for himself. Narrator Richard Ferrone captures Bernie's cool demeanor and his flair for perfect timing.

"Not Bernie's Best"
I liked the English house setting. I liked all the book talk. I thought the book was a bit tedious.
I would recommend the early Burglar books.
I would. He is good as Bernie but weaker with the other characters. His little girl voice was awful.
I will read any book about Bernie Rhodenbarr. I wish there were more.
Clever idea but just didn't hold my attention.
