Block's last Scudder mystery, A Dance at the Slaughterhouse, was called smoothly paced, deftly plotted, outstanding by the Chicago Tribune. Now Block is poised to break through with his hottest, freshest look at the Big Apple's dark side. A heroin wholesaler haggles with kidnappers over his wife's ransom, and she comes back in pieces. But Scudder is on the killers' trail in no time.
