Publisher's Summary

Matthew Scudder is about to face every cop's worst nightmare: James Leo Motley, psychopath extraordinaire.
Twelve years ago Matthew Scudder lied to a jury to put James Leo Motley behind bars. Now the ingenious psychopath is free, and the alcoholic ex-cop turned private investigator must pay dearly for his sins. Friends and former lovers - even strangers unfortunate enough to share Scudder's name - are turning up dead because a vengeful maniac is determined not to rest until he's driven his nemesis back to the bottle…and then to the boneyard.

Fantastic read for a fantastic story.

What did you love best about A Ticket to the Boneyard?

Block has never failed to impress me with his evolving look at Matt Scudder. So many readers have attempted these books and I've liked them all (Block himself did one and it was pretty good). Joe Barrett might be the best yet.

What does Joe Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great, subtle accents and a warm, welcoming voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes - as it was, I took it to the gym and worked out more than I would have.

Another Matt Scudder great story...

I know am biased : i am firmly convinced that Lawrence Block's Matthew series lays on the the top of the thrillers stories of the past 30 years . I've read all the books in "real time" (i.e. when they were first published) and now i've the pleasure to discover them in an audio format. The books have not aged a bit as Matt Scudder's stories provide what one expects from a great thriller : an intriguing and tense plot, engaging characters , great atmosphere and a tension that builds up as you turn the pages . They are well written , captivating and make you feel a great empathy with the lonely hero , Matt Scudder.
Do not miss it !
