9780380725342: Even the Wicked (Matthew Scudder)

Matthew Scudder knows that justice is an elusive commodity in the big city, where a harmless man can be shot dead in a public place criminals fly free through holes in a tattered legal system. But now a vigilante is roaming among the millions, executing those he fees deserve to die. He calls himself "The Will of the People"—an ingenious serial killer who announces his specific murderous intentions to the media before carrying through on his threats. A child molester, a Mafia don, a violent anti-abortionist—even the protected and untouchable are being ruthlessly erased by New York's latest celebrity avenger.

Scudder knows that no one is innocent—but who among us has the right to play God? It is a question that will haunt the licensed p.i. on his journey through the bleak city grays, as he searches for the sanity in urban madness. . .and for a frighteningly efficient killer who can do the impossible.

Review:

This is far from the best of Lawrence Block's landmark Scudder series-too little action or suspense, too much domestic bliss--so I'll just use its publication as an excuse to introduce newcomers to some past glories. The best of them all is still When the Sacred Ginmill Closes, definitely on my short list of the 100 Best Mysteries. But close behind are such other Scudder classics as A Long Line of Dead Men, A Dance at the Slaughterhouse, The Devil Knows You're Dead, Eight Million Ways to Die, In the Midst of Death, A Ticket to the Boneyard, and A Walk Among the Tombstones.

From the Publisher:

Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Lawrence Block brings back Matthew Scudder in his most sensational and startling mystery yet.

"Will of the People" is New York's latest serial killer. A one-man vigilante squad, he exacts retribution from the city's most notorious evildoers. His list of victims includes a child molester, a Mafia don, a violent anti-abortionist, and a hat-mongering racist.

Already working on the seemingly random murder of a terminally ill acquaintance, Matt Scudder reluctantly accepts a retainer from Will's newest target, a controversial defense attorney, who soon winds up dead despite intensive security. In Block's inimitable way, clues lead Scudder not only to criminals but to self-discovery as well, making Even the Wicked the detective's most gripping and reflective appearance yet.

Descrizione libro HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2002. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. New York s a tough town. Hard to impress. Shrugs off hype, casts a cold eye on glitz. But once in a blue moon a killer with street smarts and a sense of theater will reach out and take the city by the throat. Maybe he ll write letters to a popular tabloid columnist, proclaiming himself the answer to a failed criminal justice system. Maybe he ll point a finger at the kind of villain the law can t touch. A child killer who got off on a technicality, say. A top mobster with decades of blood on his hands. A rabble-rouser who incites others to murder. Maybe he ll sign himself Will, as in The Will of the People. Then suppose he takes aim at a respectable lawyer, a defense attorney with a roster of unpopular clients. Suppose the lawyer s a friend of Matt Scudder. Scudder is New York to the bone. He s as tough as the big town itself, as hard to impress. And now he s up against the self-styled Will of the People in a city with eight million ways to die, a city where not just the good guys but even the wicked get worse than they deserve.
