    I enjoyed the complex detective character, Matthew Scudder in The Sins of the Fathers. The characters decisions making process to solve crime and punishment for the crime is very interesting. The book is a page turner, that you quickly get lost in.
  • Great Deal!

    Forget about the convenience of not having to wander around looking for a book, or not having to lug a book around with you... The reason I love e-books is that it puts into your hands stories like this one. Stories that are VERY hard to find in print form, nut are MUST reads for any crime/noir fan. The vast majority of detectives in fiction today are soft-core versions of Matt Scudder.
