Publisher's Summary

In his 16th Matthew Scudder novel, All the Flowers Are Dying, New York Times best-selling author Lawrence Block takes the series to a new level of suspense and a new depth of characterization. Block puts Scudder, and the listener, at the very edge of the abyss. A man in a Virginia prison awaits execution for three hideous murders he swears, in the face of irrefutable evidence, he did not commit. A psychologist who claims to believe the convict spends hours with the man in his death row cell, and ultimately watches in the gallery as the lethal injection is administered. His work completed, the psychologist heads back to New York City to attend to unfinished business.
Meanwhile, Scudder agrees to investigate the suspicious online lover of an acquaintance. It seems simple enough. At first. But when people start dying and the victims are increasingly closer to home, it becomes clear that a vicious killer is at work. And the final targets may be Matt and Elaine Scudder.

I love the Matt Scudder series but this narration

Would you try another book from Lawrence Block and/or Lawrence Block?

Yes.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Matt.

What didn’t you like about Lawrence Block’s performance?

Maybe it was an experiment that humored Lawrence Block but I found the narration abrasive and distracting. I still listened, after I listened to everything else I had in my library and it was great, typical Matt Scudder.

Very gritty, not for the squeamish.

I was into the mystery at first, into it as a psychological thriller, but as the details of rape and torture become more explicit I just couldn’t listen anymore. It was just too horrible too contemplate. I know this happens and happens exactly as described, but I just don’t want those vivid images in my mind.
In contrast what makes the Keller series by the same author great is that he leaves the gory details out and concentrates more on the humanity of the hit man in his everyday life. This book was just awful.
