Mystery Amateur Sleuth
It's hard to ignore someone with his hands in your mouth.
Bernie Rhodenbarr's all ears when Dr. Sheldrake, his
dentist, starts complaining about his detestable,
soon-to-be-ex wife, and happens to mention the valuable
diamonds she keeps lying around the apartment. Since
Bernie's been known to supplement his income as a bookstore
owner with the not-so-occasional bout of high-rise burglary,
a couple of nights later he's in the Sheldrake apartment
with larceny on his mind -- and has to duck into a closet
when the lady of the house makes an unexpected entrance.
Unfortunately he's still there when an unseen assailant does
Mrs. Sheldrake in . . . and then vanishes with the jewels.
Bernie's got to come out of the closet some time. But when
he does, he'll be facing a rap for a murder he didn't commit
-- and for a burglary he certainly attempted -- unless he
can hunt down the killer who left him hanging.
