The Mysterious Bookshop

Block, Lawrence - The Burglar Who Thought He Was Bogart

N.Y., Dutton, 1995. First edition. Full-time bookseller and part-time burglar Bernie becomes involved with the beautiful Ilona, watching old Bogie movies with her, when he takes what seems a simple enough job. It isn’t, of course, and bodies pile up while Raffles, the bookstore cat, searches for clues and Carolyn looks for the new Sue Grafton novel. Very fine in dust jacket. $21.95
