Lawrence Block

LAWRENCE BLOCK has won most of the major mystery awards, and has been called the quintessential New York writer. His series characters—Matthew Scudder, Bernie Rhodenbarr, Evan Tanner, Chip Harrison, and Keller—all live in Manhattan; and like their creator, they would not really be happy anywhere else. He is the editor of Manhattan Noir and Manhattan Noir 2: The Classics.
