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 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 1/17/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine Clark | 1/10/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beckett | 1/3/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paige | 12/24/2013

    " Here's the thing. . .I read this book Thursday - Friday (4 days ago). I cannot remember the plot, but I remember I liked the book. I think that about sums it up for my recommendation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed | 12/18/2013

    " This is a later title than DANCE AT THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE, the Matt Scudder I read a bit earlier. Matt's butcher friend Mick Ballou plays a big role in this story. I enjoyed SLAUGHTERHOUSE a little more, I believe. Not sure why. Still a satisfying hardboiled read but Matt has a big heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerry | 12/15/2013

    " Very, very good; dark and funny "

    " Been a long while since I went back to the Matt Scudder novels - no real reason. But was like meeting on old friend. This is number 14 - I wisely ordered 15 16 and 17 at the same time. Looking forward to it. Great character - stoic, world weary... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mindy | 9/13/2013

    " a wee more intense and dark then many mysteries novels. just the way i like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsy | 5/5/2013

    " I've read most of the Matthew Scudder series, but this one is my favorite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe Barlow | 9/13/2012

    " Another terrific Scudder adventure. Take the title of the book literally: a number of supporting characters from the series meet their ultimate fate in this book, lending to a more thoughtful, reflective, and (oddly) cinematic read. If another Scudder film ever gets made, this is the book to do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 9/2/2012

    " A great novel about a former police detective who has to make a choice about keeping his friends who live outside the law and how far he will go to help them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Djdee | 5/10/2012

    " Another great Matthew Scudder book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paige | 1/12/2012

    " Block does it again. If you like a dark, somewhat anti-typical heroes, give this series a try. His humanity and morality keep you on his side. "
