This is a city that seduces dreamers—then eats their dreams.

Matthew Scudder understands the futility of his search for a longtime missing Midwestern innocent who wanted to be an actress in the vast meat grinder called New York City. But her frantic father heard that Scudder is the best, and now the ex-cop turned private investigator is scouring the hell called Hell’s Kitchen looking for anything that might resemble a lead. And in this neighborhood of the lost, he’s finding love—and death—in the worst possible places.

    Philadelphia Inquirer

  • “Realistic, gripping, and poignant.”

    Kansas City Star

  • “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.
