Too Much...Not Enough.

Scudder's struggles with alcohol have always been an interesting sub-plot in Block's book, but takes center stage here. Center stage with a spotlight and otherwise empty stage -- there's barely a crime to be dealt with! It ultimately renders this tale moribund. I could barely finish it.

That said, Block is one of my very favorite authors...I'll be right in line for his next one. Just a misfire here.

I always enjoy and prefer Block's reading of his own material, but Stechschulte does a fine job here.

more great Lawrence Block

Have read most all of Lawrence Block's books. In "Seven Million Ways to Die" he wrote the best description I have ever read of an alcoholic event (I am an alcoholic so I know from whence I speak). What a wonderful writer and look forward to his next novel. Louella E Rehfield.
