Matthew Scudder, a former cop and unlicensed private detective in New York, is asked to investigate the murder of a prominent and wealthy couple by their daughter. Although the police believe they have it solved, the daughter is sure there’s more to the story, and Scudder will find more challenges in this case than he can imagine. Gifted narrator George Guidall’s elegant style is like nectar flowing through the story. All characters are captured perfectly, even those with rough edges. The ego of the killer and the weariness Scudder sometimes feels are both fully, yet subtly, expressed. Fans of the series, or those new to it, will be captivated by the pairing of Block and Guidall.
