Sins of the fathers. Matt Scudder book one.
on 7 August 2015
A slow book but entertaining, written in the first person point of view. A young woman is murdered in her home, the young man she shared the home with it seems killed her without a doubt before committing suicide in prison, the woman's father asks Scudder, an unlicensed private eye to look into his daughters life, in doing so Scudder learns the secrets of the victim and her alleged killers lives and comes to the conclusion of who really did kill her.
Matt Scudder is a semi honest unlicensed private eye who sees a case through to the end and makes sure justice is served one way or another. He's a man who left the police force after an eight year old girl is killed when he's chasing killers and one of his bullets ricocheted into her eye. Matt Scudder is a man with a drink problem and no private eye licence. As he puts it, he does favours for people and they give him gifts.
Book ten of the Matt Scudder series - A Walk Among The Tombstones, starring Liam Neeson - was made into a pretty good film and I'm looking forward to reading it, but first I'm going to read books two through eight, I believe there are sixteen in all up to now and I'm looking forward to reading them all.
