It should have been the night that launched a new pop idol. Tamar Valparaiso is young and beautiful, with the body and voice of an angel. The stage is set for her to launch her debut album, Bandersnatch, on a luxury yacht in the heart of the city. But halfway through her performance, masked men drag Tamar off the stage and into a waiting speedboat, while the partygoers look on helplessly.

Detective Steve Carella is just showing up for the graveyard shift when news of the kidnapping comes in. Working disjointedly with a Joint Task Force that calls itself The Squad, Carella and the men and women of the Eight-Seven must find Tamar before time - or indeed her very life - runs out.

In this brilliant look at the music industry, Ed McBain once again combines his mastery of form with the fast-paced dialogue and intricate plotting that have become his signature.

    " Ugh, this was entirely too long - in desperate need of an editor. Teach me to pick up a book just 'cause I like the title. "

    " Got this on audiobook, didn't realize it was abridged. Story was eh, nothing special. "

    " Even though I had figured out the part of the plot, it was still a good story, put together well, and what real investigative wor is all about. Liked the fact that i was story about the city cops beating out the FBI arrogance. "

    " I just got the recording from the library without recommendation. The beginning is so gross and vulgar that I don't recommend it nor will I finish it. "
