9780060872793: The Burglar Who Thought He Was Bogart (Bernie Rhodenbarr)

Bookseller Bernie Rhodenbarr's in love—with an exotic Eastern European beauty who shares his obsession with Humphrey Bogart movies. He's in heaven, munching popcorn with his new amour every night at a Bogart Film Festival—until their Casablanca-esque idyll is cut short by his other secret passion: burglary.

When he's hired to pilfer a portfolio of valuable documents from a Park Avenue apartment, Bernie can hardly refuse. But the occupant's early return forces Bernie to flee empty-handed—and he soon finds himself implicated in a murder. Before you can say "who stole the strawberries?" he's hunting for a killer, up to his neck in the outrageous intrigues of a tiny Balkan nation . . . and menaced by more sinister fat men and unsavory toadies than the great Bogie himself butted heads with in pursuit of that darn bird!

Book Description HarperCollins, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 170 x 107 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Even burglars fall in love, and in this case, it s Bernie doing the falling, with the lovely and alluring Ilona. Night after night, sharing popcorn in the flickering shadow of a Bogie movie, Bernie finds himself tongue-tied - sometimes literally. It would appear Ilona s now doing all the stealing. Well, not really. Bernie s been approached by the oddly named Hugo Candlemas to pilfer a posh East Side apartment, make off with a portfolio and collect a fast, easy sum. A reasonable enough request for a trained burglar, sure, but just when things are going well, things turn bad. Bernie s nocturnal visit is interrupted, and he ends up going home empty-handed. If this wasn t bad enough, Hugo Candlemas turns up missing, and Ray Kirschmann, New York City detective-extraordinaire, comes looking for answers. A body has been found at Candlemas s residence, and there s evidence linking Bernie to the crime. For once, though, Kirschmann doesn t think Bernie s the guilty party. But he does want his help.
