Description
A Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America and the winner of multiple Edgar and Shamus awards, Lawrence Block gives us a long-awaited return to Matthew Scudder. Facing his demons in his first year of sobriety, Scudder finds himself on the trail of a killer. When his childhood friend Jack Ellery is murdered, presumably while attempting to atone for past sins, Scudder reluctantly begins his own investigation, with just one lead: Ellery's Alcoholics Anonymous list of people he wronged.

"Block has so perfected a pared-down, hard-boiled style that this story—about good intentions that backfire, fatally—seems to tell itself."—Washington Post

"Mesmerizing.... A lament for all the old familiar things that are now almost lost, almost forgotten."—NYTBR

"A wise and fascinating addition to the Matthew Scudder cannon. It could not be more welcome, nor could it have been written with more understated craftsmanship. The dialogue sounds exactly like things people say to each other, but it isn't. It's better, quicker, smarter. Read this book attentively. It's much more fun than taking lessons."—Thomas Perry
