Publisher's Summary

The city caught its collective breath when upscale couple Byrne and Susan Hollander were slaughtered in a brutal home invasion. Now, a few days later, the killers themselves have turned up dead behind the locked door of a Brooklyn hellhole - one apparently slain by his partner in crime, who then took his own life.

There's something drawing Matthew Scudder to this case that the cops have quickly and eagerly closed: a nagging suspicion that a third man is involved, a cold, diabolical puppet master who manipulates his two accomplices then cuts their strings when he's done with them. No one but Scudder even suspects he exists. And his worst fear is that the guy is just getting started....

    Story
    "Block's prose is as smooth as aged whiskey..."

    Few thrillers have main character that is as developed, engaging and credible as Matt Scudder. He is a man of few, but definite principles that pursues the truth without compromise and with a distinguished humanity. The characters that surround him, the dialogues and the New York atmosphere make the story so captivating that is difficult to put the book down. As the Publishers weekly says : "Block s] prose is as smooth as aged whiskey...and the story flows across its pages.".
    A truly fine book
