Instead, with simple, unvarnished narrative that feels true in your heat, seems true to your head, and rings true to your ear, you learn not to watch from your vantage point on high for the high-octane magic that so many of his craft employ.
Once you learn there's nothing to see up there, you climb down and slap your feet on wet New York pavement, take a couple of extra quick steps to catch up, and walk a little further with Matthew Scudder. You feel the dirt in Block's novels.
I've read literally dozens of Block's books by now, and what never ceases to amazing me is how he can strip away so much of what I "think" we're coming to noir/crime/mystery stories for. I come for them, but he craftily baits and switched me.
Instead he gives me people. People in situations they cannot explain or understand. People who are afraid, excited, confused, in over their head, and dying. Just people, like you and me.
In novels where the glitz and shiny lights and action are page after page, someone's death can go unnoticed. In a novel like this, where the character is you, your friend, your greatest love, your son, a death can hurt. A lot.
He really is an amazing writer. One you can do a very rare thing. Not make you care about the story, but care about the people in it. Their deaths hurt. Why wouldn't they? You've known them for years.
