From Our Editors
Bernie-the-burglar Rhondenbarr takes on a simple apartment break-in, only to find a dead body in the bedroom. Now he's on the run with his old nemesis, Detective Kirschmann, nipping at his heels.

Fans of Lawrence Block's saucy series burglar Bernie Rhodenbarr (who was revived after a long absence in the recent The Burglar Who Traded Ted Williams) will be delighted to learn that Dutton is bringing back the book that launched Bernie about 16 years ago. Burglars Can't Be Choosers shows an insouciant Bernie before he acquired the antiquarian bookstore he now runs when not burgling. As in Ted Williams, there turns out to be a corpse in the apartment where Bernie is doing his job; otherwise the two books are much different: Ted Williams is much funnier, but there's always pleasure to be had in seeing the birth of an enduring hero.
