Lawrence Block, best-selling author of A Walk Among the Tombstones and A Dance at the Slaughterhouse, now presents his third and finest collection of stories in the tradition of Ray Bradbury and Edgar Allan Poe. Block's characters are special people. Here are a few of the folks you're about to meet: Bernie Rhodenbarr, burglar and bookseller, who's hired by a tabloid to break into Graceland and hunt down the King himself...Martin Ehrengraf, a dapper little lawyer who never loses a case - and never has to go to trial...The Merciful Angel of Death, who turns up at AIDS hospices to visit the sickest of the sick - just before they die...Paul, film critic and man-about-town, who wears a safari jacket and eats in ethnic restaurants and sleeps with a teddy bear...and, in three appearances here, Block's award-winning detective Matthew Scudder. Tales of mistaken identity, ambiguous truth, and twisted justice make Some Days You Get the Bear a complex and fascinating wall of windows on today's world. Alternately terrifying, humorous, and thrilling, these are stories to speed the pulse and chill the blood.
