Book Description

6 Oct 1997
Second omnibus of Matt Scudder Mysteries brings the complete backlist into print - from a Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America. Matt Scudder is an ex-cop, ex-alcoholic who does favours for friends - he is nota private detective, you need a licence for that kind of thing. But doing favours for the kinds of friends Matt has - a smattering of high - and low-classcall girls, bent coppers, and gay bar owners means digging into the murky underworld of New York City is inevitable. The fourth, fifth and sixth Scudder stories are gritty, urban nightmares featuring a man with a sound heart and a weary smile, trying his best to keep off the booze and right injustice when he when he finds it. "Some of the finest detective novels penned in this century" Jonathan Kellerman.

More About the Author

Lawrence Block has been writing award-winning mystery and suspense fiction for half a century. His most recent novels are A DROP OF THE HARD STUFF, featuring Matthew Scudder, and GETTING OFF, starring a very naughty young woman. Several of his books have been filmed, although not terribly well. He's well known for his books for writers, including the classic TELLING LIES FOR FUN & PROFIT, and THE LIAR'S BIBLE. In addition to prose works, he has written episodic television (TILT!) and the Wong Kar-wai film, MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS. He is a modest and humble fellow, although you would never guess as much from this biographical note.
