There’s a lot going on in the 87th Precinct this spring, and none of it is good. Jumpers on building ledges, a salesman torn apart by an explosion, and to cap it all off, they find the dead, half-naked bodies of Irene Thayer and Tommy Barlow in bed together. It has all the earmarks of a double suicide: a note, empty liquor bottles, closed windows, and the gas on the stove turned up. At least this one’s open and shut … or is it?

Something doesn’t sit right with the detectives at the 87th Precinct, so Steve Carella and his partner Cotton Hawes decide to give the case a once-over. Routine checks can turn up interesting facts. Like Irene’s mother, who has an insurance policy on her daughter.  Or Irene’s grieving, cuckold husband who’s riding the ragged edge. Even Tommy’s brother. The problem is, in order to find a killer, you have to prove there was a murder.

A complex, captivating thriller that probes the deep recesses of the human heart, Like Love is a bittersweet addition to Ed McBain’s 87th Precinct series and a rare look inside the softer side of hardened detectives.

    " I hated it, it was the worst, most boring story told in such an old fashion way of boredom. "

    " Usual sexist stuff. Dated, but so interesting to see how women were viewed in 1963. E.g. Two corpses found nearly naked on a bed. Male hardly described at all, female described in detail. "

    " I'm usually a big fan of Ed McBain/Evan Hunter. This one wasn't that good. The dialogue was clunky and the story just felt a bit forced. Not a particularly strong conclusion either. "
