As a cop with the city’s famed 87th Precinct, Steve Carella has seen it all. Or so he thinks. Because nothing can prepare him for the sight that greets him on a sweltering July night: fellow detective Mike Reardon’s dead body splayed across the sidewalk, his face blown away by a .45.

Days later, Reardon’s partner is found dead, a .45-caliber bullet buried deep in his chest. Only a fool would call it a coincidence, and Carella’s no fool. He chalks the whole ugly mess up to a grudge killing until a third murder shoots that theory to hell. Armed with only a single clue, Carella delves deep into the city’s underbelly, launching a grim search for answers that will lead him from a notorious brothel to the lair of a beautiful, dangerous widow. He won’t stop until he finds the truth, or until the next bullet finds him.

    " I just read 87th Precinct Mysteries # 24 and #25. Loved them both. So I decided to start with #1 - Cop Hater. Another fast and entertaining read. Gives you a good view of big city living in the 50's. I'll start #2 this evening - The Mugger. I'm working our three libraries so I hope to be able to read them in order. "
