After the First Death

Lawrence Block: After the First Death (USA 2016)

From the Publisher:
Alex Penn wakes up in a squalid Times Square hotel room. This is what he sees when he finally opens his eyes:

"The floor was a sea of blood. A body floated upon this ocean. A girl-black hair, staring blue eyes, bloodless lips. Naked. Dead. Her throat slashed deeply.

"It had to be a dream. It had to, had to be a dream. It was not a dream. It was not a dream at all.

"I've done it again, I thought. Sweet Jesus, I've done it again."

Years before, Alex Penn woke up in similar circumstances, called the police, went to prison. A technicality freed him-and now there's been another drunken blackout, another dead streetwalker.

But something nags at his memory, and he begins to suspect some other hand wielded the knife. And if he didn't murder this woman, maybe he didn't kill the other one, either.

So he runs, adrift in an urban jungle, hoping to steer clear of the police long enough to solve the crime.

AFTER THE FIRST DEATH is sure to appeal to fans of David Goodis and Cornell Woolrich. And, with its gritty New York setting and its undercurrent of alcoholism, it can be considered a precursor to Lawrence Block's iconic Matthew Scudder series.

THE CLASSIC CRIME LIBRARY brings together Lawrence Block's early crime novels, reformatted and with new uniform cover art.

After the First Death

Lawrence Block: After the First Death (USA 2002)

From the Publisher:
Lawrence Block weaves his spell in this suspenseful taleof a man haunted by murders he hopes he hasn't committed...
It was all too frighteningly familiar. For the second time in his life, Alex Penn wakes up in an alcoholic daze in a cheap hotel room off Times Square and finds himself lying next to the savagely mutilated body of a young woman. After the first death, he was convicted of murder and imprisoned, then released on a technicality. But this time he has to find out what happened during the blackout - and why - before the police do.

Lawrence Block: After the First Death. iBooks, ISBN: 0743445074 (August, 2002), 192 p., $6.99.
