really liked it

I haven't read much mystery, but the end seemed a little messy with all of its complicated plans to reveal every single person involved in the murder.
Aside from that, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Bernie's wit is entertaining, and his morals as a career burglar are intriguing. Block keeps making me forget the characters I'm rooting for are thieves and corrupt officers.
(the consensus on the characters' part was that it was all right so long as wealthy people were the ones losing out.)
Block seems to have piqued my interest in mystery books. I found the story interesting, even the ending was satisfying--despite any confusion. To be honest, the appeal of Bernie's character alone would be enough to keep me reading.
