Overview

Out on the Cutting Edge (Matthew Scudder Series #7) by Lawrence Block

This is a city that seduces dreamers . . . then eats their dreams.

Matthew Scudder understands the futility of his search for a longtime missing Midwestern innocent who wanted to be an actress in the vast meat-grinder called New York City. But her frantic father heard that Schudder is the best—and now the ex-cop-turned-p.i. is scouring the hell called Hell's Kitchen looking for anything that might resemble a lead. And in this neighborhood of the lost, he's finding love—and death—in the worst possible places.

This one annoyed me. The girl got exactly what she deserved, and so did Scudder. Hey, Scudder, here's an idea: instead of tithing to chuches you don't belong to or handing out cash to sidewalk trash, how about sending it to your kids, you bum?

The Matthew Scudder series is definitely a good read. Lawrence Block is able to capture the hard-boiled detective style alongside Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammet. Block's detective Matthew Scudder, a former police officer and alcoholic, is an intruiging character that gets the job done.
