    " An old man talks to the 87th about an old murder case. "

    " McBain (or Hunter AS McBain) is probably my favorite writer. It was kind of a bummer to give an 87th two stars. Had to, though. These books were churned out quickly. This is the only one I've read, so far, that felt like Evan needed to have spent more time with it. "

    " Read by candlelight during the Sandy blackout. You know where it's going but still pretty creepy. "

    " This book drove me nuts! I kept reading and hoping it would get better. It didn't, and it drove me to distraction. "

    " I am unsure how this book qualifies as an 87th Street Precinct book. Basically, it's about a guy who accidentally kills a girl he picks up in a bar and then spends the rest of the book deciding whether or not he should report his crime. Awful. "
