In this fourth book of the Abe Lieberman Mystery series, the Chicago police detective finds he must catch a thief to nab a killer.
George "Pitty Pitty" Patnik was a thief who thought he had everything planned for a nice, clean in-and-out burglary. But that was before he heard the screams and saw the blood. Before the long knife came down again and again. Before the murderer realized he had an audience.
Now Pitty-Pitty is on the run - from the clever Lieberman who has figured it all out, from the murderer, and from the awful memories of what he's seen.

"OUTSTANDING . . . Another stellar performance, alight with menace and compassion."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Career burglar George "Pitty-Pitty" Patniks plots his crimes down to the tiniest detail, so hitting the suburban Chicago home of a well-to-do couple is a cinch. He knows exactly what to expect--until murder interrupts his "perfect" heist.
In his sixty-some years, most of them spent as a cop, Abe Lieberman has seen it all. And his instincts tell him that something doesn't add up in the evidence left after Dana Rozier's savage killing. The victim's grieving husband has a solid alibi, and everything points to a burglary gone bad. But the weary, wise Lieberman knows better, as he races with a killer to find the one man who knows the truth. . . .
"A LIVELY, COLORFUL SERIES. Kaminsky is blessed with a finely tuned ear. That, plus an obvious affection for ethnicity (all varieties), enables him to breathe life into characters."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Kaminsky expertly juggles the moods of his prose: comic, scary, murderous."
Edgar Award-winning author Stuart Kaminsky died October, 2009, at the age of 75.
