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.

The police can't prove that socialite Richard Thurman arranged the rape, torture, and murder of his beautiful, pregnant wife. The dead woman's brother thinks Matthew Scudder can.
