5.0 out of 5 stars Short, memorable, essential stories for Scudder fans, 30 Sept. 2011
By 
D Belbin (Nottingham UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This collection includes every short story that Lawrence Block has written about Matthew Scudder, so provides a kind of alternative chronology or companion to the Scudder novels. Block famously says he never knows whether a series is over, but the final story here, 'One Last Night At Grogan's', has an air of finality about it, neatly summarising many of the events in the life of Scudder and the series' central characters. (There's also a fun, previously uncirculated squib about bar-owner Mick Ballou that interprets the final scene of 'The Sopranos'). It's a satisfying ending to a collection that will prove essential to Scudder devotees and an ideal introduction to those new to one of crime fiction's most memorable, best written investigators.

5.0 out of 5 stars The End of Matt Scudder?, 6 Sept. 2012
By

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Night and The Music (Paperback)
This book contains all the short stories of the "Matt Scudder" series by Lawrence Block.
I recommend reading this volume last after you have read all the previous novels.
Although the stories are set in different time lines throughout the series they are an easy read (one of which is actually a short version of one of the novels).
What caps this book off is the final story "One Last Night At Grogan's" which if it is the final words written about Matt Scudder is a fitting finale.
A great book to end a fantastic series of novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars One last taste of Scudder, 13 Feb. 2015
By

This was my last read, having gone through the whole series (even if I did start in middle, got hooked on that one book). It is very difficult to wind up a series as successful and readable as this but Lawrence Block has done it in style. Sad there are no more Scudder books - maybe I should try his other books but I don't want to be disappointed - Scudder is a hard act to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars E.nd of an era, 13 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read all of the Mathew Scudder books
all in sequence and was so disappointed when they finished I had to try this one. Well worth it. But now Matt really has retried. Now have to see what the burglar is up to. This.'m you Lawrence.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm a fan not a critic!, 13 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have loved all the Matt Scudder books and would buy any related books Mr Block writes about him. Both author and character are getting older, but hope a few more books will come my way. If you haven't read any of the series - start at the beginning and enjoy.
