Lawrence Block: The Burglar Who Painted Like Mondrian

Lawrence Block's Bernie Rhodenbarr is one of the best figures in the world of detective fiction, which is illustrated by number five in this funny series. Used book seller, Bernie has sticky fingers that make him the least suspected amateur detective in the genre.
The supporting players in this romp are equal to Bernie. A ransom of a Mondrian for a kidnapped cat it an outrageous beginning. This Bernie demands a good art reference to make it really shine.

Lawrence Block: The Burglar Who Painted Like Mondrian

Ez a Bernie olyan szerencsétlen. Mármint folyton belebotlik gyilkosságokba. Persze mindig ő a bűnbak. Már rég fel kéne hagynia a rablovazással. Ez a történet nem szikrázott annyira, mint az előző.

A krimi-vonal nem kötött le, de a párbeszédek végett megérte :-)

I spent ten months in London and never got out of the British Museum.

And it wouldn’t be that dangerous, I decided. Not much worse than hang-gliding blindfolded. Safer on balance than swimming with an open wound in shark-infested waters, or playing catch with a bottle of nitroglycerine, or singing “Rule, Britannia” at Carney’s Emerald Lounge in Woodside.

“I see,” I said, which is something I very often say when I don't.

“Just keep opening doors. You never know what you’ll find on the other side.”
“Isn’t that the truth? Could be the lady, could be the tiger.”
“Could be both.”

People seem to have stopped picking up after their dogs. Walking’s becoming an adventure again.
