The hooker was young, pretty … and dead, butchered in a Greenwich Village apartment. The prime suspect, a minister’s son, was also dead, the victim of a jailhouse suicide. The case is closed, as far as the NYPD is concerned. Now the murdered prostitute’s father wants it opened again—that’s where Matthew Scudder comes in. But this assignment carries the unmistakable stench of sleaze and perversion, luring Scudder into a sordid world of phony religion and murderous lust where children must die for their parents’ most unspeakable sins.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This tale, which introduced the then-hard-drinking ex-cop, is spare and lean and full of dark insights into lonesomeness and anguish…Block’s style is admirable: free of gimmicks, plain but utterly telling in every line. This is a fine opportunity to get in on the start of what has become one of the most rewarding PI series currently in progress.” Publishers Weekly
“The fascinating ordinariness of Scudder and the harsh realness of his New York City arrive full force here…As haunting and mournful as the baying of a hound at the moon—and a must for Block/Scudder fans.” Kirkus Reviews
