This was my first forray into the Matthew Scudder series, and I will definitely be reading more. In many ways, this book embodies the entire detective/mystery fiction genre. Quick, short read, more novella than novel, but all the elements are there. Flawed hero, righteous villian, action, plot twists: it's all here and it all works beautifully.

The hooker was young, pretty... and dead, butchered in a Greenwich Village apartment. The prime suspect is a minister's son, was also dead, the victim of a jailhouse suicide. The case is NOT over.

Classic Scudder

This edition has 276 pages but subtract the 39 blank pages between chapters & its 237. Also, if its print (27 lines/pg) was normal pb print (say 41) it would only be 156, so its a quick read. The story? PI investigates prostitutes murder. Predictable and not very interesting; not bad but nothing to recommend it either. TPB

This was my intro to Matthew Scudder. I liked it well enough to request every book in the series. I was not disappointed. I have a whole circle of "new friends"
