Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In A Dance at the Slaughterhouse, private investigator Matthew Scudder is on the hunt for the rapist and killer of rich, beautiful Amanda Thurman. But when a snuff film involving a young homeless boy is discovered, the case becomes terrifyingly twisted. Somehow Scudder and his girlfriend Elaine must find the connection between the the two crimes and set a trap for the killer. From the Edgar Award-winning author of A Ticket to the Boneyard.

Synopsis:

A successful socialite's beautiful wife was raped and murdered in her own home — and Matt Scudder believes the victim's "grieving" husband was responsible for the outrage. But to prove it, the haunted p.i. must descend into the depths of New York's sex-for-sale underworld, where young lives are commodities to be bought, perverted...and destroyed.
