“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
The book is an easy, enjoyable read. Nostalgic for those that grew up in the 50's. literary work it is not, a hard core police procedural it is. Characters are multi faceted and being developed further with each novel. Not much to add to all the previous accolades, just sit back and let the stories take you back to a simpler time before CSI forensics, when cops ruled, women wore skirts, and bulls were gods... Dick Hill provides a theatrical narration that brings you back to the days of radio, great job. Enjoy!!!
