Best-selling author Lawrence Block transports you to New York City to walk the shadowy back streets with P.I. Matt Scudder, ex-cop and recovering alcoholic.

In Everybody Dies, Matt is finally leading a comfortable, almost respectable life-until he helps an unlikely friend uncover a nameless enemy. The Big Apple seems to be mellowing now that the crime rate is down and gentrification is sweeping the old neighborhoods. But when a hoodlum buddy from the past asks Matt to investigate the murders of two employees, the spruced-up sidewalks seem as mean as ever. Suddenly Matt finds himself in a world where every step leads him through a mine field, and no man’s survival can be taken for granted.

Well-crafted characters, action-packed plots, and gritty, realistic settings have earned Lawrence Block multiple Edgar and Shamus Awards. With his dramatic performance, narrator Mark Hammer expertly captures all the restless rhythms and street-smart language.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Der-shing | 1/21/2014

    " One of my favorite Scudder books, and a bit more violent than most of them. Kind of evokes feelings of the first Godfather novel with me, but with that "modern" (for the late 90s, at least) New York twist. "

    " Very Good; Continuing character: Matt Scudder; PI Scudder helps his old friend Mick Ballou, who is in the midst of a gang war against an unknown enemy. "

    " I find it interesting that though this was a dark book ( I really miss Jim already) it was nowhere near the noirness of the midEdgar books. I'm glad about that. Scudder has his own moral code that he follows. I don't necessarily agree with it, but it is consistent. His friendship with Mick is strange though. Hmmm. Kind of like Myron's for his psychopathic sidekick. "

    " I never tire of reading this series, as Matt Scudder remains a complex and ambivalent character with equally compelling friends and acquaintances. Slightly slow in pace, the end seems a bit rushed considering the monumental changes to some characters' circumstances. A great read overall. "
