A calypso singer fresh off a gig walks home in a downpour, when shots tear through his head like steel rain. A hooker out on the street in the same miserable weather doesn’t know her final trick will be her last. What brings these two sad ends together… the same gun.
It is stormy in the 87th Precinct and with every hour that passes, every minute the killer stays on the loose, the trail is only going to get colder. But that first clue always leads to another, and Detectives Carella and Meyer find themselves in a dark, twisted world of sex and sadism that ripples through the city’s veins like a virus. If they don’t find their man soon, the sickness will turn deadly again… and again… and again….
Taut and relentless with the brute force of a bullet to bone, Calypso is one of the darkest entries in best-selling author Ed McBain’s 87th Precinct series.
