Read full description of the books Sometimes They Bite:An unwelcome visitor shares terrifying secrets with a stranger at an isolated fishing hole. Two men concoct a convoluted Hitchcockian murder plot... only to discover death is far more gruesome and permanent than it appears on-screen. An aspiring assassin has a close encounter with his idol. Lawrence Block is at his sinister best in eighteen tales of drifters, grifters, and sweet revenge that are darkly comic, chillingly clever, and sharp as a razor edge.
Sometimes they bite
The Ehrengraf defense
Strangers on a handball court
Like a dog in the street
A bad night for burglars
Nothing short of highway robbery
One thousand dollars a word
The gentle way
The Ehrengraf obligation
When this man dies
The Dettweiler solution
Funny you should ask
Like a thief in the night
Going through the motions
This crazy business of ours
And miles to go before I sleep
Out the window.
Read information about the authorReceived the Shamus Award, "The Eye" (Lifetime achievment award) in 2002.
From his web site:
I'm told every good author website needs a bio, so here's mine:
"Lawrence Block's novels range from the urban noir of Matthew Scudder (A Drop of the Hard Stuff) to the urbane effervescence of Bernie Rhodenbarr (The Burglar on the Prowl), while other characters include the globe-trotting insomniac Evan Tanner (Tanner on Ice) and the introspective assassin Keller (Hit and Run). He has published articles and short fiction in American Heritage, Redbook, Playboy, Cosmopolitan, GQ, and The New York Times, and 84 of his short stories have been collected in Enough Rope. In 2004, he became executive story editor for the TV series TILT. Several of his novels have been filmed, though not terribly well. His newest bestsellers are Hit Parade, his third Keller novel (July 2006 in hardcover), and All the Flowers are Dying (April 2006 in paperback), the sixteenth Matthew Scudder novel. Larry is a Grand Master of Mystery Writers of America, and a past president of both MWA and the Private Eye Writers of America. He has won the Edgar and Shamus awards four times each and the Japanese Maltese Falcon award twice, as well as the Nero Wolfe and Philip Marlowe awards, a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Private Eye Writers of America, and, most recently, the Cartier Diamond Dagger for Life Achievement from the Crime Writers Association (UK). In France, he has been proclaimed a Grand Maitre du Roman Noir and has twice been awarded the Societe 813 trophy. He has been a guest of honor at Bouchercon and at book fairs and mystery festivals in France, Germany, Australia, Italy, New Zealand and Spain, and, as if that were not enough, was presented with the key to the city of Muncie, Indiana. Larry and his wife Lynne are enthusiastic New Yorkers and relentless world travelers."
