Series: Matthew Scudder
(From the publisher):
The hooker was young, pretty... and dead, butchered in a Greenwich Village apartment. The prime suspect, a minister's son, was also dead, the victim of a jailhouse suicide. The case is closed, as far as the NYPD is concerned. Now the murdered prostitute's father wants it opened again — and that's where Matthew Scudder comes in. But this assignement carries the unmistakeable stench of sleaze and perversion, luring ex-cop-turned-investigator Scudder into a sordid world of phony religion and murderous lust where children must die for their parents' mosy secret, unspeakable sins.
