Praise For The Burglar Who Counted the Spoons
An absolute delight! Bernie has always been one of my favorite heroes and I couldn't restrain my excitement when I learned he was back. This is classic Block: Clever, original, fast-paced, and populated with characters we completely believe and love spending time with. Retirement be damned! Larry better be at work on the next one in the series. That's all I can say. --Jeffery Deaver
