I’ve read in “real time” all the Scudder’s books as they were published, but the pleasure to listen to listen to them few years later has not changed. In this story we find a Matt Scudder going trough a more settled period of his life (living with Elaine and working with TJ , almost like a “normal” detective).

What would have made A Long Line of Dead Men better?
I own this book and was looking forward hearing it - but the Mr. Barrett's voice was so annoying (no matter the speed or volume) that I'm deleting it. Love Lawrence Block, Love Scudder - won't be buying any more that are read by Joe Barrett, however.
Would you be willing to try another one of Joe Barrett’s performances?
