Praise for The Burglar Who Counted The Spoons

  • One of the very best writers now working the beat ... Block has done something new and remarkable with the private eye novel - WASHINGTON POST

  • Intoxicating writing - CHICAGO TRIBUNE

  • Wittily diverting ... rather like an Agatha Christie novel narrated by Basil Fawlty, or a game of Clue organized by Monty Python - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

  • Wonderfully funny ... Block's effortless first-person narrative and zippy dialogue is as pleasing as escapist fare ever gets - LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK REVIEW

  • Wonderful ... hilarious dialogue and characters you wish you could invite over for supper. Block is a hoot, plain and simple. [Block's] written dialogue has the honesty of a conversation overheard on a bus ... Bernie Rhodenbarr is a lot-of-laughs burglar. Recommended reading ... Age has not dimmed Rhodenbarr's considerable charms. The wit runs fast and plot twists are quick as a cat burglar - USA TODAY
