About this title


Matthew Scudder is hired by the father of murder victim Wendy Hanniford--supposedly slashed to death by a minister's son who commits suicide in jail--to investigate after police close the case, in a chilling mystery featuring an introduction by Stephen King.

From the Back Cover:

The hooker was young, pretty...and dead, butchered in a Greenwich village apartment. The prime suspect, a minister's son, was also dead, the victim of a jailhouse suicide. The case is closed, as far as the NYPD is concerned. Now the murdered prostitute's father wants it opened again-and that's where Matthew Scudder comes in. But this assignment carries the unmistakable stench of sleaze and perversion, luring ex-cop-turned-investigator Scudder into a sordid world of phony religion and murderous lust where children must die for their parents most secret, unspeakable sins.
