A twenty-five-year-old cold case of art theft and murder is reexamined when Matthew Scudder and his wife, Elaine, encounter the main suspect in Florence, Italy. Throughout the trip, Scudder comes to realize the killer’s motive and takes the steps towards proving the suspect’s guilt.

Quotes & Awards

  • “I began writing about Matthew Scudder in the mid-1970s…Over the years Scudder has also been featured in eleven short works of fiction.” Looking for David” is the seventh of these; it first appeared in 1997 in Whydunit, a collection of stories by members of the Crime Writers of Canada, and ran the following year in EQMM. The story grew out of a couple of threads—my recollection of the role the statue of David played in my hometown of Buffalo and a woman’s observation on the metamorphosis of her husband from Greek god to Roman emperor. Ah, well. These things happen…”

    Lawrence Block

  • “A quicker, more enjoyable read you won’t find. Veteran Scudder fans will rejoice at sharing his adventures again. May Block—and Scudder—never retire.”

    Library Journal, praise for the collected short stories

  • “[These Matthew Scudder short] stories could serve as either a companion to the books, if you’ve read them, or an introduction to the characters if you have not.”

  • Finalist for the 1999 Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Short Story
