Fifty books. Four Edgar awards. Two bestselling series. It all adds up to Lawrence Block, one of the bonafide masters of mystery fiction, and the creator of Matthew Scudder and Bernie Rhodenbarr. Now Bernie--bookseller by day, burglar by night--returns in his first adventure since The Burglar in the Library, two years ago. This time, he's tapped to retrieve the lost letters of famed and reclusive author Gulliver Fairborn. But instead of the letters, Bernie finds one dead literary agent, a beautiful woman, and a cadre of cops in his way.With his customary brand of dead-on dialogue, clever plotting, and amusing twists, Lawrence Block has done it again. The Burglar in the Rye is Bernie's wryest mystery, and the latest triumph in Lawrence Block's illustrious career.
