Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Exceptional…A whale of a knockout punch to the solar plexus.” New York Daily News
“Superb. If you haven’t been introduced to Scudder yet, start here.” Chicago Tribune
“A powerhouse.” Philadelphia Inquirer
“Realistic, gripping, and poignant.” Kansas City Star
“Block, a seasoned crime writer who boasts some of the slickest, sneakiest dialogue to be found in the genre, has fine-tuned Scudder over the course of several mysteries, including Eight Million Ways to Die. The enigmatic, low-key philosopher-sleuth works the mean streets as well as anyone, and this is one of his best adventures.” Booklist (starred review)
“The prolific author’s humanity and the immediacy of his understated style are again evidenced in his seventh mystery related by Matt Scudder…In this riveting mystery, Block’s artistry creates a full complement of fully realized characters.” Publishers Weekly
“Powerful…Scudder remains as compelling as ever, grave and compassionate and doing the right thing in a wrong world that Block makes real with street-fresh dialogue, characters, and prose.” Kirkus Reviews
