8 Lawrence Block Enough Rope by Block, Lawrence
William Morrow 2002-08-01 0060188901 / 9780060188900 First American Edition Hardcover Collectible: Like New Like New Hardcover Signed by Author
like new, signed by author on title page without inscription, stated first U.S. edition with full number line. In protective mylar cover. This hefty collection of acclaimed mystery master Lawrence Block's short fiction is packed with delights for fans of his many popular series as well as first-time readers who haven't yet met the engrossing protagonists who people them, including Keller, the thoughtful hit man; private eye Matt Scudder; burglar and bookstore owner Bernie Rhodenbarr; and Martin Ehrengraf, the well-dressed lawyer who takes criminal cases on a contingency basis and has his own devious methods for making sure his clients are always acquitted. But it's the non-series stories that are the standouts here, particularly Cleveland in My Dreams, in which a psychiatrist comes up with a novel way to rid a patient of a relentless nightmare, and the patient passes on the cure to an unsuspecting friend; Collecting Ackermans and Death Wish, two standouts about jealousy and its discontents; and a handful of other little gems with central characters who may not merit their own series because they're just not very likable, but show off Block's ability to keep the reader guessing until the last sentence. It may be hard to pick up--if only because it runs nearly a thousand pages--but this wry, witty, well-wrought collection is even harder to put down. --Jane Adams
