I like Lawrence Block's books and enjoyed reading this one. I've read quite a few of his books including some later ones in this series. I like the way he develops his characters over time as each series progresses. I probably didn't rate this one as high because I had already read some of the later ones and knew more about the main character. I would recommend the series to anyone who likes mysteries. It's not necessary to read them in order but I think you follow the characters better if you do.
