Author Info
Lawrence Block
Lawrence Block began writing at an early age, and published his first book--a softcore sex novel--at the age of 19 while still a student at Antioch College. Block moved on to much greater achievements with mysteries featuring such sleuths as the spy, Evan Tanner, who can't sleep after an accident destroyed part of his brain, detective Bernie Rhodenbarr, and ex-cop Matt Scudder. He showed his darker side in a series of novels published under the pseudonym Paul Kavanaugh, anddemonstrated his versatility with noir thrillers like "Such Men Are Dangerous" (1969). He has won two Shamus Awards, two Edgar Awards, and a Nero Wolfe Award.
Lawrence Block is a highly respected mystery novel author. In addition, he has served as a fiction-writing instructor, leading a seminar and writing several books of advice and a steady column in Writer's Digest on the subject. He himself began writing at an early age, and, using a pseudonym, published his first book--a soft porn novel--while he was still a college student. In 1961, Block used his own name to write his first mystery novel, DEATH PULLS A DOUBLE CROSS. He is probably best known for three characters, each with his own series: the spy Evan Tanner, who can't sleep after an accident destroyed part of his brain, gentleman burglar/amateur sleuth Bernie Rhodenbarr, and troubled ex-cop Matt Scudder. He showed his darker side in a series of novels published under the name Paul Kavanaugh, and demonstrated his versatility with noir thrillers like SUCH MEN ARE DANGEROUS (1969). Block was named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, and is only the third American to have received a Cartier Diamond Dagger Award from the British Crime Writers' Association. In addition, he has won two Shamus Awards, two Edgar Awards, and a Nero Wolfe Award.
From the Publisher
Annotation Matthew Scudder looks into the murder of a prostitute who was just about to go on the straight and narrow. Was it a john? Her pimp? Scudder's investigation puts his own life on the line as he tries to exact justice for a brave woman who dreamed of a better life.
Editors Note Avon is republishing the classic Matthew Scudder novel by the Edgar Award-winning Grand Master Lawrence Block. A young prostitute who wants out comes to Matthew Scudder for help. But soon after she is brutally murdered on a crumbling waterfront pier. Scudder is determined to find her killer, but the tormented P.I.'s investigation into the slain hooker's past is revealing secrets even dirtier than her trade. And suddenly Scudder's life is in jeopardy as well.
Editors Note 2 Nobody knows better than Matthew Scudder how far down a person can sink in this city. A young prostitute named Kin knew it also--and she wanted out. Maybe Kim didn't deserve the life fate had dealt her. She surely didn't deserve her death.The alcoholic ex-cop turned-pi. was supposed to protect her, but someone slashed her to ribbons on a crumbling New York City waterfront pier, Now finding Kim's killer will be Scudder's penance. But there are lethal secrets hiding in the slain hooker's past that are far dirtier than her trade. And there are many ways of dying in this cruel and dangerous town--some quick and brutal. . .and some agonizingly slow.
