Publisher Comments:

Now back in print, the acclaimed Matt Scudder novel in which the hard-nosed detective turns his life around. Forced to leave the N.Y.P.D., Matt Scudder survives the only way he knows how--drink by drink, until his barroom cronies lure him into some nasty business that includes blackmail, double cross and murder.

Synopsis:

In the dark days, in a sad and lonely place, ex-cop Matt Scudder is drinking his life away — and doing "favors" for pay for his ginmill cronies. But when three such assignments flow together in dangerous and disturbing ways, he'll need to change his priorities from boozing to surviving.

William Hardcastle, January 12, 2014 (view all comments by William Hardcastle)
One of the most significant books in the Matt Scudder series. Masterfully, with a raw edge, Lawrence Block gives his insightful revelations about surviving and getting and staying sober. All surrounded by a compelling mystery with beloved consistently surprising characters. This book introduced me to the music of Dave Van Ronk as well!!
