From the Publisher:
Nobody ever called Jerry Broadfield a saint, but he was an (almost) honest cop. Then one day he took off his badge and ratted on nearly every crooked cop on the NYPD. He was a hero--until someone set him up. Now Matt Scudder is on the case and has no idea how dirty it will get.
Annotation:
Jerry Broadfield knew it wouldn't be easy blowing the whistle on his fellow cops, but he didn't quite realize the full price he would have to pay to fight police corruption. When he discovers a dead prostitute in his room, he soon finds himself framed for the murder, and up against a lot of people who want him put away for good.
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.
