Block keeps getting better and Scudder keeps getting worse. Just about perfect.

Nine long yeras have passed since the killer last struck - nine years since eight helpless young women were hideously slaughtered by an icepick-wielding fiend. But now ex-cop Matthew Scudder has been hired to finally bring victim Barbara Ettinger's slayer to justice -- setting the relentless manhunter on a bloody trail of death almost a decade cold, searching for a psycho who's either long gone, long dead....or patiently waiting to kill again.

Lawrence Block's view of New York in the 70's is fascinating and authentic. His characters, settings and plots broke new ground when they were written and are just as vital today. Matthew Scudder is a wonderfully complex hero, and this book, which introduces Matt to Jan Keane, laid the groundwork for all the changes in Matt's life in books to come.
