Mrs. Rhodenbarr's son, Bernie, is a New York City burglar whose sideline is owning and operating a used bookstore. After accepting a commission from his friend Marty Gilmartin, Bernie plans a burgle with his best friend Carolyn Kaiser, proud owner of the Poodle Factory, as his lookout.

Bernie's unusual sensitivities and enjoyment of his craft lead to confusion and involvement in a much more sinister theft. He brings it to a successful conclusion involving a wide cast of characters.

I enjoy the fact that each book stands on its own. It does not hurt to have read the others but is not at all necessary.
