About this item

Already at work on two dangerous cases, Matthew Scudder, the down-and-out, hard-drinking ex-cop, becomes personally involved when the wife of a friend is brutally murdered

Very Good Crime Novel

Customer review by Nobrun

4.0 stars 4/19/2013 by Nobrun

Very well rounded story. You become familiar with the characters very early on. The story ties together very well in the end. This book has the best ending I have ever read - once you've gotten to know the characters, you want to know what happened after the last incident in the story. This book jumps to 10 years later and gives you the 'current' scoop - a where-are-they-now ending. Why 4 stars? The book is set in New York City (which I like) but a lot is spent on descriptive writing. E.g. if the character is traveling from one location to another, the 'narrator' tells every avenue and street used (could be up to five), every left or right turn made and every traffic light that is red. Too much.
