Most of Block's better-and funnier-short stories were collected in Sometimes They Bite. And "The Books Always Balance" is a solid nasty-twist tale of blackmail and adultery

Most of Block's better-and funnier-short stories were collected in Sometimes They Bite. This second gathering, with 18 stories originally printed in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine and elsewhere (plus two originals), includes too much that's humdrum or contrived, with little of Block's zesty, dark-edged comedy. And "The Books Always Balance" is a solid nasty-twist tale of blackmail and adultery. Among the other, lesser entries: lots of double-crossing thieves, a dab of ESP, a tough kidnap victim, a clever wife-killer-and "Death of the Mallory Queen," a strained in-crowd parody full of references to the publishers and writers in today's mystery-fiction biz.

Home Lawrence Block A Dance at the Slaughter House. A Dance at the Slaughter House, . Part of Matthew Scudder series by Lawrence Block. The building was smaller than the Felt Forum, and had a no-frills feel to it, with untrimmed concrete-block walls and a sheet-metal roof and a poured concrete slab for a floor. It was rectangular in shape, and the boxing ring stood in the center of one of the long walls, opposite the entrance doors. Rows of metal folding chairs framed the ring's three open sides. This is the first collection of short stories by Lawrence Block (others have necessarily followed), and contains some real gems. It is here that many readers will make their first aquaintance with Chip Harrison and Leo Haig, Block's tip of the hat to Rex Stout. Also found here for the first time are two tales about his, umm, unusually successful attorney - Ehrengraf. Also a Scudder tale for those devoted fans as well. There's a diverse collection of tales that reads smooth and quick. If you like Lawrence Block you will not be disappointed.

A collection of short stories. Some previously published in various mystery magazines. Some never before published. For Matt Scudder fans there's an entry. The first ever Chip Harsion story is also in this collection. Very good reading for a Lawrence Block fan.
