Eighty-six-year-old George Lasser was the superintendent of a building in the 87th Precinct until just recently. Unfortunately his tenure ended in the building’s basement with a sharp, heavy ax blade in his head.

There are no witnesses, no suspects, and no clues. The wife and son are both a little off-kilter, but they have alibis. Just when Carella and Hawes are about to put the case on the shelf, the killer strikes again. Now the detectives are hot on the trail of a man crazy enough to murder with an ax.

One of the 87th Precinct series’ finest installments, Ax is a sharp, intense crime thriller that is classic Ed McBain. The New York Times hails it as “the best of today’s police stories—lively, inventive, convincing, suspenseful, and wholly satisfactory.”

    " I really like McBain's writing. I think the Matthew Hope books are better than the 87th precint ones, though. "

    " 87th precinct novels area always fun to read! a recent kindle purchase put 35 of these bad boys in my lap, so this will be a good opportunity to read the ones i haven't and maybe re-read the ones i have. "
