Matthew Scudder, a down-but-not-out-detective, is shocked by the apparent suicide of Paula, a waitress at Armstrong's, one of Scudder's hangouts. When Paula's sister shows up and asks Matt to investigate what she believes to be a murder, Scudder agrees to take on the case. A number of clues don't add up to suicide, and Scudder's investigation leads him to the dark corners of Paula's world.

"Good detective story."
It has been at least 30 years since I read a Lawrence Block novel. I read them on long international flights when traveling on business. What I liked about his novels is that they were interesting enough to entertain me wile awake but never interesting enough to keep me from going to sleep. That is a fine line that this author filled. This novella is the Lawrence Block that I remember.
