Classic McBain

He's one of my favorites. Love 87th Precinct series. The poison here is so unique. Very creative.

One of the best

Been working my way through the 87 Precinct series. Some are great. Some a waste of time. This one is among the best as the characters are well drawn and the story engaging.
