Synopsis

The Burglar Who Counted the Spoons by Lawrence Block

Everybody's favourite burglar returns in an eleventh adventure that finds him and his lesbian sidekick Carolyn Kaiser breaking into houses, apartments, and even a museum, in a madcap adventure replete with American Colonial silver, an F. Scott Fitzgerald manuscript, a priceless portrait, and a remarkable array of buttons.

Reviews

It's a delight to find the burglar back on his best form, proving that, even at 75, Block is still one of the greatest crime writers of his or any other generation. DAILY MAIL Established fans know what to expect - neat, suspenseful plotting, howlingly funny one-liners, irresistable characters and endlessly quotable dialogue. New comers to this marvelous series are to be greatly envied. MORNING STAR Block returns with a bang after a decade away. NORTHERN ECHO Block's dialogue sparkles with wit and learned literary references, asides to crime-fiction addicts are plentiful. -- Marcel Berlins TIMES A crisp and assured read, sumptuously funny but the overriding feeling I'm left with after turning over the final page - gratification. It made me smile throughout and from a book, you can't ask any more than that. A wonderful and warm read, a great introduction, albeit a late one, to a series that I now have no option other than to begin at the beginning! MILORAMBLES
