What a piece of crap. The old detective is dull, not funny, and dumb. Why is he questioning the staff and following them around. This is old style "who done it". And even I, before the middle of the book, could figure out that Mrs. Weinberger had something to do with the thefts. The "end cruncher" is pure amateurism. This detective is done. Please bury Harry Lipkin six feet under, making sure a spike has been hammered through his hearth. A pure waste of paper and ink.

Harry Lipkin is a quick and pleasant read. A real private investigator would install a hidden camera and the thief would be found in 1 paragraph! lol. When it comes to Jewish mystery solvers, I prefer Kinky Friedman. His books are hilarious. Over all, this book is fun but it is obvious that the author is British and trying to write from the point of view of an American, because he uses words not used by Americans such as trainers (sneakers) and fairy lights.

Not funny and ending is apparent from almost the beginning.
