    Truly readable

    I find Lawrence Block¿s novels featuring Matt Scudder refreshing. They are easy to read and great escapism. In the earlier books Scudder was an unlicensed private detective who bent a lot of rules and was a drunk. Now he is sober and licensed but the rules are bent like never before. Many of the characters we have already met and Block is most skilful at bringing them back with just as important a role as before. This is the type of book you can read in a couple of days, you won¿t want to sleep and despite the action these books are relaxing.

    Hands down, Block is the best mystery writer alive.

    Quite simply, one hundred years from now, they're going to rank Lawrence Block with Dashielle Hammett and Raymond Chandler as one of the greatest hard-boiled mystery writers of all time. I can't think of one of his books that I didn't enjoy. 'Everybody Dies' is a hardboiled novel the way it should be...it's dark, it's clever, it's engaging, and the mystery itself is spellbinding. One of the things that Block can do is create real life people; these aren't stereotypes and when they die, we mourn them. Matt Scudder is no less alive than was Sherlock Holmes or Phillip Marlow. Any one of Block's books is a great read.

    A MUST READ

    This is the first Lawrence Block book i read. As soon as i finished i went out to buy all the other books in the Matthew Scudder series. This one ranks as my favorite, along with Even the Wicked. This one goes more into the character of Mick Ballou and his past. It's definitely a must read! Block captures the hard-boiled detective genre that so few writers today can do.
