A Ticket to the Boneyard: A Matthew Scudder Crime Novel (Matthew Scudder Mysteries) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Twelve years ago, Matthew Scudder lied to a jury to put James Leo Motley behind bars. Now the ingenious psychopath is free. And the alcoholic ex-cop-turned-P.I. must pay dearly for his sins. Friends and former lovers — even strangers unfortunate enough to share Scudder's name — are turning up dead. Because a vengeful maniac is determined not to rest until he's driven his nemesis back to the bottle...and then to the boneyard.

Review:

"This is as near perfect as a private-eye thriller can get. Block is...a master who holds the reader in the palm of his hand....[T]hose in search of sophisticated thrills need look no further." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Absolutely riveting....Non-stop tension and a finish that will leave you bug-eyed." Washington Post Book World

Synopsis:

The Block party continues with the spectacular repackaging of five of the best crime novels ever written, from "one of the surest, most distinctive voices in American fiction" (Martin Cruz Smith).
