See all titles by Lawrence Block.

Nominated for the 1995 Edgar Award for Best Mystery Novel.

The winner of multiple Edgar, Shamus, and Maltese Falcon Awards, Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Lawrence Block has elevated the detective novel to high artcombining grit with intelligence, suspense with stunning emotional complexity and power. And in unlicensed private investigator Matthew Scudder, he has created a character whose depth and stark humanity is unrivalled in contemporary fiction. An ancient brotherhood meets annually in the back room of a swank Manhattan restauranta fraternity created in secret to celebrate life by celebrating its dead. But the past three decades have not been kind to the Club of 31. Matthew Scudder ex-cop, ex-boozer has known death in all its guises. Which is why he has been asked to investigate a baffling, thirty-year run of suicides and suspiciously random accidents that has thinned the ranks of this very select group of gentlemen. But Scudder has mortality problems of his own. For this is a city that feeds mercilessly on the unsuspecting and even the powerful and those who serve them are easy prey. There are too many secrets here and too many places for a maddeningly patient serial killer to hide...and wait...and strike.
