By Lawrence Block

There is no accolade or major mystery award that has notalready been bestowed upon Lawrence Block. His acclaimed crime novels are as intelligent,provocative, and emotionally complex as they are nerve-tighteningly intense.And perhaps the most respected of his myriad works are the Matthew Scudderbooks—masterworks of suspenseful invention featuring a remarkable protagonistrich in conscience and character, with all the flaws that his humanity entails.This is the detective novel as high art.

In Matt Scudder’s mind, money, power, and position elevatenobody above morality or the law. Now the ex-cop and unlicensed PI has beenhired to prove that socialite Richard Thurman orchestrated the brutal murder ofhis beautiful, pregnant wife. During Scudder’s hard-drinking years, he left apiece of his soul on every seedy corner of the Big Apple. But this case is moredepraved and more potentially devastating than anything he experienced whilefloundering in the urban depths. Because this investigation is leading Scudderon a frightening grand tour of New York’s sex-for-sale underworld—where aninnocent young life is simply a commodity to be bought and perverted … and thendestroyed.
