When a blind couple is murdered, Steve Carella’s only clue is the 10-year-old dream one of the victims had. This dream will lead him to a killer whose secret is worth murder. This lastest installment in the 87th Precinct series is a labyrinthine thriller that will leave listeners breathless.

"The 87th Precinct [is] one of the great literary accomplishments of the last half-century." (Pete Hamill, Newsday)
"McBain has the ability to make every character believable -which few writers these days can do." (Associated Press)
I have read almost all 87th Pct Police novels when they were first in print.
Over time, after reading all the novels as they are published, I have created a minds eye view of all the characters. Much to my chagrin the narrator of this installment of the series bears no similarity to my mental image. The difference between what I have created in my mind, over the years, and what I hear on this download is completely incompatible. The voices I hear on the audio book bear no similarity to the voices of the characters I have created in my mind. So much so that after 5 minutes I could no longer listen to this audio book. As a born Brooklynite the accent is totally unrecognizable as from an Earthly city. What a waste of money!
