9780752848174: Hope To Die (A Matt Scudder Mystery)

The fifteenth Matt Scudder mystery from NEW YORK TIMES bestseller Lawrence Block.Byrne and Susan Hollander stroll home from a concert on a fine summer's evening in New York. Some hours later, their daughter Kristin arrives home to discover her parents brutally killed and the house ransacked. She also finds she is now a very young millionaire. A few days later the police trace the two killers to an apartment in Coney Island, and both are dead. One killed the other before turning the gun on himself - at least that's the way it looks. So that's another case solved. But for Matt Scudder it's only the beginning. The more he looks into it, the more things look wrong to him. There's a murderer out there, and he's just getting started. Pitted in a deadly game of cat and mouse, Scudder is up against the most resourceful and diabolical killer of his career.

About the Author:

Lawrence Block was awarded the CWA Cartier Diamond Dagger in 2004. His novel A Walk Among the Tombstones has been adapted for Hollywood - starring Liam Neeson, Dan Stevens and Ruth Wilson. He is also a Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America. He is the author of many novels and short stories and has won numerous awards for his mystery writing. He lives and works in New York City.

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.
