    " Good but not quite as good as some of McBain's others "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn Davies | 7/25/2013

    " An interesting book, not long, quite dated, easy to read, but a great storyline. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kgwhitehurst | 7/2/2013

    " It was good, fast read, a nice break from heavy academic reading. Even though it featured all of McBain's ability to create individual voices, the story itself wasn't as compelling as some of his novels. It's a solid entry, utterly without padding. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy Malcolm | 6/7/2013

    " Witty, easy reading page turner. Feels like something Walter Matthau could have starred in. "

    " Nobody like Ed. "

    " A killer likes to leave severed hands around the city. "
