Her name is Virginia Dodge. And she’s here to kill Detective Steve Carella.

An ordinary day at the 87th Precinct is about to take a turn for the worse when Dodge shows up to put a bullet in Carella’s head. And she doesn’t care if she has to take all the men in the 87th with her to do it.

Armed with a homemade bomb, a handgun, and a bottle of nitroglycerine hidden in her purse, Virginia holds the entire squad room hostage as she waits for Carella. And no one is leaving until he shows up to meet his maker. With all the men of the 87th save one held prisoner, they engage in a battle of wits to save their colleague from their deadly captor.

A classic in Ed McBain’s groundbreaking 87th Precinct series, Killer’s Wedge is a mesmerizing, profoundly relevant thriller where terrorism strikes deep into the heart of the house, putting everyone’s life on the line in a tense standoff with an irrational and unsound enemy.

    " What a master story teller! "

    " You know the term "willing suspension of disbelief"? I could never suspend my disbelief enough to get past the premise of the plot. Yes, the book was written in the 1950s and yes, I still appreciate and envy McBain's technical facility with the two storylines, but my impatience won out. "

    " This one was just ok for me. I never really bought into either of the main storylimes. Saved for me because McBain can write himself some dialog. "

    " The first McBain I read and it made me a confirmed 87th Precinct fan many years ago. It's probably a bit dated now, but it has a great opening (a woman walks into a police station with a revolver and a bottle of nitroglycerine in her hand) and moves along at a fast clip. "
