Description

In his popular Matt Scudder mystery series, Edgar and Shamus Award-winner, Lawrence Block, creates riveting stories set in the hardened streets of New York City. His suspenseful tale, Even the Wicked, portrays recovering alcoholic, P.I. Matt Scudder, hot on the trail of a theatrical and twisted criminal. A demented serial killer, who calls himself "The Will of the People," has gained a wide audience by sending warning letters to the Daily News. When "Will" names a prominent criminal defense attorney as his next victim, Matt suddenly finds himself protecting an old associate. Matching his wits against the wily murderer, Matt must race to uncover "Will's" identity before he loses his lawyer friend. Proclaimed a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, Lawrence Block skillfully captures the street-smart language and lifestyles of his home city. Narrator Mark Hammer provides the perfect voice for eccentric characters and evil-minded lawbreakers.

Professional reviews

"No mystery writer explores situational ethics more often or more engrossingly than Lawrence Block in his deeply satisfying series of Matthew Scudder mysteries. Scudder, an alcoholic and a failed father and husband, has strong convictions and a highly developed sense of right and wrong, but they're informed by a lifetime of mistakes and regrets and, therefore, seem honestly earned. Hammer's reading reflects just the sort of weariness, cynicism and sentiment of Block's hero, who in this case confronts not one, but possibly three, serial killers. Hammer successfully navigates almost all of the New York types populating the novel, the lone exception being his un-fortunate attempt at Scudder's street-smart teenaged protŽgŽ, T.J. It is Hammer's one misstep in an otherwise impressive outing. M.O. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
