Eight million ways to die: Matthew Scudder Series, Book 5
Nobody knows better than Matthew Scudder how far down a person can sink in the city of New York. Except a young prostitute named Kim--and she wanted out. Maybe Kim didn't deserve the life fate had dealt her. She surely didn't deserve her death.
The alcoholic ex-cop turned P.I. was supposed to protect her, but someone slashed her to ribbons in a seedy hotel room. Now, finding Kim's killer will be Scudder's penance. But there are lethal secrets hiding in the slain hooker's past that are far dirtier than her trade. And there are many ways of dying in this cruel and dangerous town--some quick and brutal . . . and some agonizingly slow.
With this book, which won the Shamus Award and was short-listed for the Edgar, Lawrence Block elevated the Matthew Scudder series to the top tier of American detective fiction. This special hardcover edition features an afterword by the author. Read Eight Million Ways to Die, the novel that proves Block to be one of the best mystery writers working today.
