When The Sacred Ginmill Closes.

by Lawrence. Block

Publication: Arbor House, 1986, New York

First edition. Inscribed. Fine in dust jacket. It's the summer of '75 and Matt Scudder is back in the streets of New York. All of his barroom buddies need him for some reason or another and Matt always does favors for his friends especially when his bank balance is low. Scudder must locate Skip Devoe's "lost" tax records -- if the IRS gets its hands on the "real" numbers, Skip will be in jail for cooking the books. He must also clear Tom Tillary of his wife's murder. Finally, Scudder must find out who robbed an after-hours joint owned by another of his pals.
