Bernie Rhodenbarr just wants a quiet weekend in the country. But who to take...the woman he has been dating is getting married Thursday. So he ends up taking his best friend Carolyn. But he does have other reasons for wanting to get away. There is a book that needs stealing.
But nothing is ever that simple. Trapped by a snowstorm in an old English style home turned hotel, Bernie is forced to solve several interesting murders.
A good Bernie Rhodenbarr book. Fun read. Recommended.
