Description
Lawrence Block's legions of fans have heralded the return of classic Bernie Rhodenbarr books to print. Now, with The Burglar Who Painted Like Mondrian, readers can complete their Rhodenbarr collection with this, the fifth and final of Dutton's reissues.As always for the intrepid bookseller-by-day, burglar-by-night, a simple job leads to bigger things. First up, Bernie the bookseller is asked by a Manhattan collector to appraise his impressive library. He does so, and while in the apartment building, makes off with a terrific cache of rare stamps. Then, upon returning home he finds best friend Carolyn Kaiser in tears. Her beloved cat has been abducted, and the ransom is a painting by Mondrian, currently on display in a museum and nearly impossible to steal. Nearly. But then Bernie remembers seeing another Mondrian hanging somewhere...in the book collector's apartment. Before too long, the painting is gone, a body turns up and the police are knocking on Bernie's door. Guess who their number one suspect is?

It's not that used bookstore owner and part-time burglar Bernie Rhodenbarr believes the less legal of his two professions is particularly ethical. (It is, however, a rush, and he is very good at it.) He just thinks it's unfair to face a prison term for his legitimate activities. After appraising the worth of a rich man's library — conveniently leaving his fingerprints everywhere in the process — Bernie finds he's the cops' prime suspect when his client is murdered.

Someone has framed Bernie Rhodenbarr better than they do it at the Whitney. And if he wants to get out of this corner he's been masterfully painted into, he'll have to get to the bottom of a rather artful — if multiply murderous — scam.
