“The 87th Precinct [is] one of the great literary accomplishments of the last half-century.” —Pete Hamill, Newsday

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harold | 3/28/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 2/18/2013

    " This guy was really great! My second McBain book. It was particularly interesting reading a detective story written more than 50 years ago. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Edward Lengel | 1/5/2013

    " Superb 87th Precinct novel. Tension builds all the way through to a nailbiter of a finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenny | 12/2/2012

    " Excellent 87th Precinct novel. Character driven and the plot keeps moving from beginning to end. My favorite so far of the series. A must-read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 10/23/2012

    " A quick, easy read but enjoyable even if the language is a bit dated. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 6/10/2012

    " It was a decent book with a pretty good story line, but I'm giving it three stars because of bad grammar and missing spaces throughout the book. It made it a bit hard to keep reading. I do hope to read the others in the collection because, like I wrote, there is a good story line. "
