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 ...

About the Author:

Lawrence Block is one of the most widely recognized names in the mystery genre. He has been named a Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America and is a four-time winner of the prestigious Edgar and Shamus Awards, as well as a recipient of prizes in France, Germany, and Japan. He received the Diamond Dagger from the British Crime Writers' Association—only the third American to be given this award. He is a prolific author, having written more than fifty books and numerous short stories, and is a devoted New Yorker and an enthusiastic global traveler.

From AudioFile:

With understated panache, Mystery Writers of America Grandmaster Lawrence Block reads from his latest Matthew Scudder mystery in which the unlicensed private investigator faces one of his most daunting nemeses yet. Block never reveals the real name of the clever killer who orchestrates a series of murders set up to look like a botched burglary and a suicide. Scudder--together with wife, Elaine, and associates, T.J. and Mick--set out to learn the identity of the real killer before they become the next victims. While the resolution of the book won't satisfy everyone, Block remains one of the great American storytellers, whose words are as alive emerging from his mouth as they are appearing on the page.
