Scudder is a complicated character, and in this book, he faces numerous moral and ethical challenges. Nothing is cut and dried. I enjoyed the dialog between him and Mick Ballou, an unlikely bff, and between him and his call girl girlfiend, and between him and his AA sponsor. If you demand action more or less continuously, you'll be disappointed. Warning: this story contains very strong and often brutal sexual content. If you are easily upset or offended, you should pass on this.

Lawrence Block can write one dang good detective novel. This series isn't going to be for everyone. This is a thinking mans detective novel which is pretty grounded and realistic. I have really fallen in love with this series. If you think you might like it I think you should give any one of his novels a try.
