From NEW YORK TIMES bestseller Lawrence Block.In Manhattan thirty-one men have been meeting annually for years. Their private club meets only to record the passage of time and give toast to the joys of life. But suddenly they are dying at an alarming rate and one of their number begins to suspect that something more than bad luck is at work.For private eye Matt Scudder, the case is one of the most baffling he's faced. Can the deaths really be a bizarre series of suicides and violent accidents? Or is there is a pattern behind the random play of tragedy? Is there a murderer at work and can he be stopped before the victims run out?
A private club meets annually down the years for the sole purpose of toasting the members' survival; eccentric but seemingly harmless - until the unusual death rate brings in Matthew Scudder to investigate. Mystifying, startling, effortless; of the many claimants, Block is Chandler's natural successor. (Kirkus UK)
