A Dance at the Slaughterhouse (Matthew Scudder, Bk 9)
A Dance at the Slaughterhouse - Matthew Scudder, Bk 9 Author:Lawrence Block 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.
If you haven't read Lawrence Block, start! His collection of the Matthew Scudder mysteries set in New York City are good, sometimes gritty and fascinating glimpses into a side of life that here is treated a with interesting style and texture than the popularized versions in movies and TV of the theme. The series of books he wrote with Scudder as his main character are available in Paperback Swap - and they are guaranteed to entertain and please. A Dance at the Slaughterhouse was my favorite, but they're all good.
