Abstract:

If it takes a criminal to catch a criminal, then Bernie Rhodenbarr should move to the front of the amateur-detective line. After all, Bernie's a thief. And he's a good one, too, managing to live in Manhattan on his earnings. Of course, we all make mistakes, and Bernie makes a big one, taking a work-for-hire burglary from a stranger. Bernie hasn't been in the apartment he's been told to rob for very long when the police arrive ... and find a dead body in the bedroom. Bernie escapes the boys in blue, but he needs to find the killer before the cops find him. First published in 1977, Burglars Can't Be Choosers is the affable Bernie's very 1st outing in an outstanding series that now numbers 10.
