The Burglar in the Library, by Lawrence Block

Very well done and funny mystery. This was a treat, a kind of classic English style cozy set in America with a hardboiled tone and many references to other mysteries. When Bernie and his friend Carolyn head to a weekend at a country house hotel, his mind is on thieving a rare book there, but murder gets in the way. Fun and lively.
