Publisher's Summary

Annie Boone is dead. She was shot four times in the chest, pieces of the liquor store’s windows spread over her body like raindrops from a lethal storm. For 87th Precinct detectives Carella, Kling, and newcomer Hawes, even more troubling is the loss of one of their own. Detective Roger Havilland is murdered shortly thereafter, a shard of glass through his jugular.

Faced with a host of suspects—from Annie’s former mother-in-law to her ex-husband, employer, and a string of boyfriends—the detectives find themselves with a victim whose identity spurns all conventional definition. She was the store’s saleswoman… as well as a divorced mother, pool shark, society lady, drunk, and patron of the ballet. Each facet of her life has a corresponding potential suspect. The only way for Carella and the men to find her killer—and maybe that of Havilland, too—is to find out who she really was. The problem is, the only one who really knew her died in a shower of glass.

A brooding, mesmerizing psychological thriller, Killer’s Choice is a stunning addition to mystery icon Ed McBain’s 87th Precinct series. Its complex plotting and extraordinary intensity, which culminates in an explosive finish, will leave you breathless.

    "Always a good story from this author."

    Ed McBain books work so well as audio books and this one is no exception.

    "When will Dick Hill retire?"

    Ed McBain was a wonderful writer. Never once was I disappointed reading one of his books. I have several of his books on audio tapes. They were good listens. Dick Hill just ruined this book. His reading is a total distraction from the story line. The job of the narrator is to perform the story. It is not to bring attention to himself. I thought for awhile before buying this book because Dick Hill's narrations are all over the place. They are either great or terrible. Wish I'd saved my credit.
