The Burglar in the Closet

I finished reading The Burglar in the Closet by Lawrence Block. It is the second book in the Bernie Rhodenbarr book series. Lawrence has written many books.

Side Note: When I started reading this book, it reminded me of the song Trapped in the Closet by R. Kelly. I have been listening to the song lately.

Big Warning: there is some violence.

In this book, Bernie goes to his dentist and his dentist complains about his ex-wife who was also his hygienist before they married. His dentist says he knows Bernie is a burglar and asks him to steal her jewels. He agrees to do it and he goes to steal them. But the dentist’s ex-wife comes home with another man. Bernie hides in the closet while things happen (sex). But he left the case of jewels outside of the closet. The other man leaves and the woman decides to take a shower. After getting her robe, she locks the closet!! Bernie is still in the closet!!  He gets the key and is about to unlock the closet when someone rings the doorbell. The woman goes to the door and she is attacked!! After the killer leaves, Bernie sneaks out of the closet to find her dead and his case of jewels gone!!  The police think the dentist did it because the murder weapon was a dental tool.  The dentist gives the police Bernie’s name. Bernie and the dentist’s new hygienist  try to find out who killed the dentist’s ex-wife. In the end, they do catch the killer.

I loved this book. Now I’m reading Gone for Good by Harlan Coben.
