The hooker was young, pretty...and dead, butchered in a Greenwich Village apartment. The prime suspect, a minister's son, was also dead, the victim of a jailhouse suicide. The case is closed, as far as the NYPD is concerned. Now the murdered prostitute's father wants it opened again--that's where Matthew Scudder comes in. But this assignment carries the unmistakable stench of sleaze and perversion, luring Scudder into a sordid world of phony religion and murderous lust where children must die for their parents' most unspeakable sins.

Good introduction to a popular series
I would recommend this book to my friends who enjoy mystery series. And, after reading it, I'll seek out more volumes in this series for myself.
Good differentiation among voices without over-acting; a good portrayal of the meaning of words, phrases, and entire conversations.
Perhaps a TV movie -- action could fit into a 90 minute window (plus commercials = 2 hours). The plot is straightforward enough to survive its necessary shortening to make the screen play. Good actors would convey the personalities and relationships among main characters effectively and efficiently, without relying on words alone.
Good Pulpish reading
