Matthew Scudder is about to face every cop’s worst nightmare: James Leo Motley, psychopath extraordinaire.
Twelve years ago Matthew Scudder lied to a jury to put James Leo Motley behind bars. Now the ingenious psychopath is free, and the alcoholic ex-cop turned private investigator must pay dearly for his sins. Friends and former lovers—even strangers unfortunate enough to share Scudder’s name—are turning up dead because a vengeful maniac is determined not to rest until he’s driven his nemesis back to the bottle … and then to the boneyard.
“The murders are as savage as they come, their horrific nature intensified by the clarity of Mr. Block’s pristine prose…Block has a fine nose for the pungencies of New York’s after-dark street life, and he gives his hero wonderful opportunities to swap syllables with the city’s most articulate riffraff.”—New York Times
