#Top20series #20Series20Days day 2 Probably my all time favorite PI series.Matthew Scudder has friends in low places.He lives in Hell‘s Kitchen area of NYC. I recognize his New York.Sins is the 1st book in the series , originally published in paperback in 1976. I would rank book 6 Sacred Ginmill , the most powerful. As much as I love the series, I haven‘t completed it . The next book up, Hope to Die, is the 15th in the series.

Andrew65 Sounds like I need to read them. 2y
