Summary
People are afraid of all the wrong things. The signal was direct, clear, abrupt. A million dollars or his wife returned to him in pieces. That was the message Kenan Khoury's wife's kidnappers phoned in. It wasn't that Khoury didn't get the message or didn't understand it; rather, that the men who sent it weren't big-time dealers like he was, weren't familiar with the subtle art of negotiation. What Khoury hadn't figured on was that when kidnappers are stiff-armed, they always pay out the balance. The balance was what Khoury found in the trunk of a battered Ford Tempo. Lawrence Block puts Matt Scudder, a long-suffering private-eye, on the trail of murderers and into the seamiest side streets of New York City. His adversaries are the kind of hard-boiled characters you find on real city blocks and in real city bars. / High-volume dope dealers make an easy mark for kidnappers. After all, what are they going to do, call the cops? But Kenan Khoury, heroin wholesaler to the five boroughs, haggled over the price, and his wife came back in pieces. The only person he can trust to avenge her is Matt Scudder, ex-cop, sober alcoholic, who wields his own brand of guerrilla justice
