Matthew Scudder believes he has finally reached a point of stability and respectability in his life, but when he offers to help his dearest friend from Hells Kitchen, his world is suddenly turned upside down once again *Author: Block, Lawrence *Publication Date: 1999/11/01 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 1.00 *Width: 4.00 *Height: 6.75
From the Publisher:
Matt Scudder is finally leading a comfortable life. The crime rate's down and the stock market's up. Gentrification's prettying-up the old neighborhood. The New York streets don't look so mean anymore.

Then all hell breaks loose.

Scudder quickly discovers the spruced-up sidewalks are as mean as ever, dark and gritty and stained with blood. He's living in a world where the past is a minefield, the present is a war zone, and the future's an open question. It's a world where nothing is certain and nobody's safe, a random universe where no one's survival can be taken for granted. Not even his own.

A world where everybody dies.

Annotation:
Matt Scudder once again gets wrapped up in the shady dealings of Irish mobster Mick Ballou, his old, and very dangerous, friend. Enlisted to help Mick hide the bodies of two men killed in a botched robbery, Matt soon finds himself the target of unknown killers, who mistakenly bump off his A.A. sponsor, believing they've killed him. The only way to get out of this mess is to team up with Mick and take no prisoners in tracking down the ones who are out to get him. A "New York Times" Notable Book for 1998.
Author Bio
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, and
demonstrated 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.
