    " I've been rereading the 87th precinct books; hadn't read this one in a long time, and was pleasantly surprised. The form was pretty experimental for McBain, along with the usual sharp police mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shirley | 6/23/2013

    " Loved the first in this series so hoping for another good one. And I was not disappointed. Great story and some good recipes as well--always a great combination. Information about the workings of the White House especially appropriate right at this time. "

    " Classic 87th Precinct, but with a different point of view! "

    " Still another fast moving 87th Precinct novel. This oner tells the story of big city street gangs. "
