A powerhouse.

-- "Philadelphia Inquirer"

Block, a seasoned crime writer who boasts some of the slickest, sneakiest dialogue to be found in the genre, has fine-tuned Scudder over the course of several mysteries, including Eight Million Ways to Die. The enigmatic, low-key philosopher-sleuth works the mean streets as well as anyone, and this is one of his best adventures.

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

Exceptional...A whale of a knockout punch to the solar plexus.

-- "New York Daily News"

Powerful...Scudder remains as compelling as ever, grave and compassionate and doing the right thing in a wrong world that Block makes real with street-fresh dialogue, characters, and prose.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

Realistic, gripping, and poignant.

-- "Kansas City Star"

Superb. If you haven't been introduced to Scudder yet, start here.

-- "Chicago Tribune"

The prolific author's humanity and the immediacy of his understated style are again evidenced in his seventh mystery related by Matt Scudder...In this riveting mystery, Block's artistry creates a full complement of fully realized characters.

-- "Publishers Weekly" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
