The Sins of the Fathers

The Sins of the Fathers  - Lawrence Block Matthew Scudder, a PI and former police officer, is hired by the estranged father of a murdered prostitute to find out what happened to her over the years. The police investigation was over as the suspect hanged himself and it was considered an open and shut case.Scudder is an interesting but extremely damaged character. It would have helped to have known more of his backstory. The case was fairly easy to figure out but it held my interest, enough so that I'm willing to try the next book in the series.
