It pains me a little to give a Lawrence Block anything less than a top rating because I’ve always loved his books so much. This one, though, while enjoyable, just didn’t catch me as much as some others. I like the characters of Chip Harrison and his boss, but I suppose I unavoidably compare them to Archie Goodwin and Nero Wolfe (which of course I’m supposed to do) and they just don’t quite make it. Still, the writing is good, the plot interesting, and I’d read more about these characters. I listened to it all in one day while I cleaned the house, and it definitely worked for that! Just didn’t love it.
