Steve Carella does not fit the picture of a big city detective. Well-mannered and the consummate professional, he lacks the rough-hewn edges of the men who devote their lives to fighting crime on the streets. But there is one thing that tears him up—one thing that drives him to the edge of his much darker side.

When a madman rapes and kills his first victim in the 87th Precinct but leaves the second alive after a brutal knifing, Carella relentlessly hunts the man down. But the detective is in for a shock when the surviving victim recognizes the assailant in a police lineup.

A probing, intimate crime thriller that exposes the deeper recesses of the 87th Precinct’s main character, Blood Relatives is an Ed McBain classic. His mastery of character, dialogue, and place come together in a brooding powerhouse of a novel.

    " Another good story in the 87th Precinct series. This one unfolds pretty quietly with only Carella really present in the investigation. However, you're allowed to play along with him a bit more than normal, and it's a nice tight story. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. "

    " Enjoyable, but not one of the best 87th precinct novels I've read. I guessed the killer about half way through the book and I'm not usually good at that. I credit that with the choices being too few, not my own increased detective skills. I did enjoy the book nonetheless. "

    " Another police procedure. Not the best one "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Gizzard | 3/23/2013

    " A bit dated, but a pretty good police procedural. I did guess the ending about a quarter of the way through. This book did keep my interest a lot better than many of the books I've read lately. "
