Matt Scudder is a superbly drawn, sympathetic character, but there's another reason for reading Scudder novels: no one does New York better than Lawrence Block
THE TIMES
One of the very best writers now working the beat ... Block has done something new and remarkable with the private eye novel
WASHINGTON POST
If you know anything about this series, you'll know that it's the best there is, no argument ... Great stuff
INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
One of crime writing's most accomplished stylists
GUARDIAN
Block is a flat-out entertainer
DAILY TELEGRAPH
The Matt Scudder books are built on character, atmosphere, crackling dialogue and a great deal of brooding-the taste for them is addictive.
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
Enough pleasures and excitements to keep us smiling and breathing hard all the way through
CHICAGO TRIBUNE
A tense plot, expressive writing and unusual and thoroughly real people with desperate problems. Not a book for the weak-hearted!
