But the one thing that he really has a hard time tackling is the philosophy of Roman emperor and sage, Marcus Aurelius. Instead of trying to piece together clues, Scudder has to seek and destroy.

Matthew Scudder is Lawrence Block's remarkable private investigator. In earlier Scudder novels Matt is almost always without a drink in his hands. A Ticket to the Boneyard" would definitely be my first choice if I had to recommend someone to read a novel by Lawrence Block. He's a former NYPD detective who left the force after an accident left a child dead in a crossfire. I have read most of the Scudder series to date and fond "A Ticket to the Boneyard," the best. I could not put it down. Reading it took priority of everything else I had to do or should have done.

The streets of New York are never safe, but the release of James Leo Motley, a psychopath who went down swearing revenge on Matt Scudder on all who knew him, means death is out there looking for a victim. No-one is safe - friends, lovers or just those unfortunate enough to share the same name.

In Lawrence Block's "A Ticket to the Boneyard", our man Matthew Scudder is tackling many things: a sociopathic bloodthirsty killer, his responsibilities toward three of his women, a restraining order, his alcoholism... But the one thing that he really has a hard time tackling is the philosophy of Roman emperor and sage, Marcus Aurelius. Specifically, the idea of seeing things as they are, without prejudice, without influence, without context (almost) is the hardest thing for Scudder to get his mind around. As an alcoholic, he has heard a hundred times that when it comes to alcoholism, "It is what it is." The serenity prayer, recited at the end of every meeting, weighs acceptance as equally as change and wisdom. However, as an ex-cop and unofficial investigator, he has to work with patterns, priors, and precedents constantly. Acceptance, when it comes to this killer, becomes a dangerously passive act. And, yet, the time Scudder did act against this criminal a dozen years previously, it led to death and disaster. No wonder he is in such a quandary.

This is not a murder mystery; it is a "we know whodunnit, but how do we catch him?" novel. This gives Block a little flexibility. Instead of trying to piece together clues, Scudder has to seek and destroy. This gives Block plenty of time to have his investigator seek out allies, and Block seems to relish in this. I had the feeling that he enjoyed writing "A Ticket to the Boneyard". There are several long passages of dialogue--much of it personal to Scudder--which Block savors: Scudder with Elaine, Scudder with Danny Boy, Scudder with Durkin, Scudder with Ballou... and even Scudder with himself. This novel had a much deeper feel than some of the others. The high level of psychological credibilty was unexpected--and appreciated by me. All this makes for one of the best Block had put out there in this series.

This book is the real deal. By the end of chapter two, the world class writing skills of Mr Block have glued your hands to the covers of your book, and your eyes to the screen of your kindle like fast setting super glue. In this glorious example of the modern day detective story / psycho thriller, a declared mortal enemy from the past has dared to show his face in an attempt to intimidate the Scud and his part time girlfriend Elaine. Death threats are very intimidating to all of us, but generally speaking, people don't take on Matthew Scudder or his friends unless you want a fight. The bad guy in A TICKET TO THE BONEYARD, James Leo Mötley, doesn't have a fight wish. He must have a death wish.

The book opens with a gruesome murder suicide. The local police close the case on its (all too obvious) obvious elements, but on the receipt of a newspaper clipping of the case, which is mailed directly to Elaine and then another copy to the Scud, he races down to the crime scene to search for more clues. More clues are found and the hunt is on. Suspense dominates this book like no other volume of this fantastic series. Characterisation is awesome, with the main three characters in question - Scudder, Elaine and Motley all standing out but they are superbly supported by a well drawn cast.

The writing style of Mr Block is well known for being world class but this book, together with the beautifully dark and mournful WHEN THE SACRED GINMILL CLOSES - is another highlight of the series. It is dark, it is gritty, it is realistic, depressing, frightening, but most of all it is a book greater than the sum of its parts. It is an unequivocal classic work of literature.

Flynn paints a portrait of greed based on multiple levels - pragmatism, jealousy, and evil. The characters jump out of the pages as sadly and frighteningly real - some of whom you would definitely not like to meet on a brightly lit concourse, let alone a dark alley. Matthew Scudder still deserves a high level of admiration despite his flaws and human failings. Twisting plot, multi leveled motives, and deeply troubled individuals carry this novel right past the appointed bed time and into the twilight.

Hard boiled Matt Scudder novel. Well written, but not suspenseful as you know the perpetrator from the get go. For being such a "smart" guy Scudder gets himself into a situation that even a fool would not have done. Also same for the heroine. Nevertheless I did enjoy because of the writing style. Liam Niessen plays Scudder in "A Walk Among the Tombstones" which was a good movie.

Many of the Scudder novels are what I'd call a thinking man's detective. Sure, there's violence, but that isn't the point as much as it is in some other mysteries. Usually, the focus is on Scudder's process, and him using his brain and instincts about people to solve the crime(s).

This one has an angrier bent to it, as a psycho is coming after Scudder. It's a nice change-up, while still retaining the elements that make the Scudder series one of my favorite.

It has been awhile since I read a Matthew Scudder novel but a Goodreads friend recommended this highly so it became my lunch book for the last couple of weeks. Compelling tale and characters though a bit heavy on the AA material (my Dad was a member for 33 years) but well done and accurate. Nasty villain and well drawn characters and plot. I'll be back for more!

Lawrence Block, as usual, has written another novel which will keep the reader interested until the very end. The story has an excellent plot, believable characters and a steady pace throughout. However, for me, the constant use of a vulgar word thoughout the story detracts from the rhythm of the pace. I recommend the book to any one interested in an
excellent story.
This book is good. Pros typical Matthew Scudder quality. Cons Too long in the middle of the book for me.
