A call girl warns former cop Matthew Scudder that a homicidal psycho he helped convict is out of jail and seeking revenge. "The New York settings are superbly authentic, the dialogue is hip . . . and the resolution . . . is hair-raising," said PW.

Overall, I would rank "Baneyard" in the middle of the Scudder novels, particularly because it starts off so conventionally. But author Lawrence Block does not disappoint in the end, giving us the type of high quality resolution we have come to expect from Scudder.
This book was written quite well and people. Although the descriptions of some people and some details do not help as much as other descriptions; the book does paint a good picture of the deaths. The details of how people were killed gave a nice description of how everything came together and how each event occurred in order. Like the saying "Never judge a book by its covers." It is part of what this book is like. The cover changes every once in a while yet it helps depicts what kind of story this is. When I first saw the cover of the book, I thought the book was going to be about a murderer and its victims. But when I finished reading the book it was not close to how the cover depicted the book to be like. I enjoyed his book very much. Some times it put me at the edge of my seat reading faster to find out what was going to occur next. Although there were not many exciting parts it was deep in learning one kind of problems a former detective. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy a nice murder story before they go to bed. Sometime there are scary parts, which you want to put down the book but it is so interesting that you rather finish the book.
