Jerry Broadfield thinks he’s a good cop. But now he’s been charged with extortion—and his former buddies in the NYPD would like to see him laid out on a morgue slab for squealing to a committee on police corruption. Suddenly, he’s got a lot of enemies, and when a dead call girl turns up in his apartment, his troubles get even bigger. Broadfield screams “setup,” but nobody believes him—except ex-policeman, now unlicensed PI Matthew Scudder. Because Broadfield turned traitor, no cop is going to give Scudder any help with this investigation; so Scudder is on his own. But finding a killer among the stoolie cop’s sleazebag connections is going to be as difficult as pouring a cold beer in hell—where some of Broadfield’s enemies would like to see Scudder if he gets himself in too deep.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Alberto | 2/11/2014

    " I enjoyed this one less than other Matt Scudder ones, but anyway it deserves 4 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Mikel | 1/26/2014

    " A great read, with a wonderful character in Jerry Broadfield. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Arlene Allen | 1/13/2014

    " Early mysteries of the 60's and 70's amaze me, particularyly Lawrence Block's. His prose is taut, his characters fully formed and believeable, the mystery satisfying - and he did it without writing an encyclopedia-sized tome. This is a particularly great example of his early work. I can't remember reading an adult novel that clocked in under 200 pages yet made me tear up the way this one did. "

    " 3.5 stars. As usual, a solid Block mystery. "
