When the Sacred Ginmill Closes by Lawrence BlockI absolutely LOVED this! I thought the last book I read in the series was excellent and yet some how this one feels like it surpassed it!
When the Sacred Ginmill Closes is a line from a song by Dave Van Ronk, an old folkie from the 60s Village era. Its a slice of desperation and so is this awesome book!
Our sort-of hero ex-cop turned kinda detective Matt Scudder has his plate full in this one, running around New York City for his friends and acquaintances trying to solve robberies and murders for them.
When hes not busy doing that, hes busy getting his drunk on. Scudder has demons and on his downtime he tries to drown them. Much of the first half of this book is just descriptions of his favorite bars. Its sad as fuck, but also honest to the drunkards point of view. Its also a great look at NYC back in the days before it was sanitized.
Drinking may be his demanding hobby, but when its game time, Matt gets his shit together for his friends/clients to do them a favor for a few bucks in an effort to solve a crime for them. In When the Sacred Ginmill Closes hes trying to solve three of them at once. Thats a lot to ask of a character and a writer, but Lawrence Block proves once again why -if you like detective fiction or mysteries or hell even just reading about NYC in the 70s- you ought to be reading Blocks very well written Scudder series! Get on it!
The Sacred and the Corrupt
The Death Knight Diaries
Updated: Aug Clear to date is it that there has been a Great deal of effort to hide the truth and hinder the print of this biography once it was released on social media in first manuscript form. Trial dates conveniently set by the magistrate to reflect its release date and in turn an Institutional plot to silence the truth. With court time over a year wasted on continuous Pre Trial Conference Dates. Unlike my second publication to an International Publication House.
