Ed McBain, author of the best-selling 87th Precinct series, now takes us Downtown
in a bold, new departure of a novel that will have readers cheering for a lone out-of-towner running for his life in New York City. In Downtown
, we meet Michael Barnes, a Florida orange grower who finds himself in a Wall Street bar in New York City with a couple of hours to kill. It's a couple of hours that almost kill him, as he's swindled, robbed, framed for murder and hunted down by an assassin in one of the wildest, scariest, funniest, fastest 24 hours ever packed into one novel.
