Ex-cop Matt Scudder operates as an unlicensed PI – he does people favors and they give him gifts. When a pair of killers start kidnapping and killing the loved ones of New York drug dealers, Scudder is asked to find them and take one of the victims’ husbands to them so that he might take revenge. A Walk Among The Tombstones is as dark as the novel that spawned it – and as grimly humorous. Set in 1999, it reflects the casual misogyny of the period without being exploitative.
Getting Off is the sexy new noir novel by Lawrence Block writing as Jill Emerson. Its main character is Katherine Anne ‘Kit’ Tolliver, who hasn’t used that name since high school – and for good reason. She loves sex, but she may love murder more!
