Review:

This is far from the best of Lawrence Block's landmark Scudder series-too little action or suspense, too much domestic bliss--so I'll just use its publication as an excuse to introduce newcomers to some past glories. The best of them all is still When the Sacred Ginmill Closes, definitely on my short list of the 100 Best Mysteries. But close behind are such other Scudder classics as A Long Line of Dead Men, A Dance at the Slaughterhouse, The Devil Knows You're Dead, Eight Million Ways to Die, In the Midst of Death, A Ticket to the Boneyard, and A Walk Among the Tombstones.

From the Publisher:

Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Lawrence Block brings back Matthew Scudder in his most sensational and startling mystery yet.

"Will of the People" is New York's latest serial killer. A one-man vigilante squad, he exacts retribution from the city's most notorious evildoers. His list of victims includes a child molester, a Mafia don, a violent anti-abortionist, and a hat-mongering racist.

Already working on the seemingly random murder of a terminally ill acquaintance, Matt Scudder reluctantly accepts a retainer from Will's newest target, a controversial defense attorney, who soon winds up dead despite intensive security. In Block's inimitable way, clues lead Scudder not only to criminals but to self-discovery as well, making Even the Wicked the detective's most gripping and reflective appearance yet.
