Synopsis
Bernice "Bernie" Rhodenbarr is a former cat burglar who now runs a used bookstore, but one of the crimes of her past has come back to haunt her. When a dead body is found in a house that she robbed, she is suspected of murder and has to go back to using her burglary skills in order to clear her name.
