Editorial Reviews

Review

"I love the Matthew Scudder series, and I love short stories--and this is the complete collection of Scudder stories. One of the greats of alltime is the Edgar-winning "By the Dawn's Early Light."
--Otto Penzler, Los Angeles Times, Ten Most Wanted Books of 2011

"Indeed, the title story is a brilliantly told mood piece that willdeeply satisfy those who have followed Scudder on his journey throughlife. It is a rare moment of pure humanity in Scudder's world and serves to give the impression that Scudder is a lot more than just a PI, thathis story doesn't stop when we're not reading about him."
--Russel McLean, Crime Scene Scotland

"It's easy to imagine yourself sitting on the couch in Scudder's home,sipping iced tea while jazz music plays softly in the background...Youare always guaranteed a good time."
--John Neal, The Celebrity Café

"My favorite, I think, is the title story, "The Night and the Music",which finds Matt and his wife Elaine talking and listening to music invarious places around their part of New York. This story is so elegantand evocative that it reminds me very much of some of Irwin Shaw'sstories...Also in that vein is the final story in the book, the recently written and fittingly titled "One Last Night at Grogan's", again not amystery or a crime story. I don't know if Block plans to write any moreabout Matt Scudder, and he may not know, either, but "One Last Night atGrogan's" has a beautifully elegiac feel to it, and if it does turn outto be the series' farewell, it's a good one."
--James Reasoner, Rough Edges
