Hope to Die. Author : Lawrence Block.
Hope to Die. Genres : Mystery, Thriller. 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.
Mr. Block, please write more Matthew Scudder books. I really like the sober, middle-aged Scudder, who seems to have matured along with his author. TJ, the street kid whose mind moves like a breakdancer, is absolutely delightful.
Lawrence Block writes terrific books. His Matthew Scudder series is his best work. The Boston Sunday Globe). That said, I loved Hope To Die and wish I hadn't already finished it. I still don't understand the necessity of putting solar panels on the roof of the shipping container; it seemed odd and not the kind of thing an artful serial murderer would do but, if I understood everything, I guess I'd have to be Patterson. I'm looking forward to Alex Cross Book 23 and would rather see it sooner than later.
