In this 87th Precinct thriller, Detective Steve Carella must track down a killer who's systematically rubbing out all the city's graffiti artists, leaving each victim mischievously splashed with paint and blood. Foul play takes another form when an old nemesis, the Dead Man, taunts Carella and the eight-seven with riddling clues for solving a crime - or crimes - not yet committed. Given what he's deduced from the prankish perpetrator, Carella strongly suspects the crime will take place during a free rock and rap concert scheduled to take place in the city's largest park. As Carella tries desperately to second guess him, the Dead Man meticulously puts together a plan to carry off a multimillion dollar coup. Soon Carella finds himself racing against time in a game of wits that could leave the city reeling under an onslaught of dirty tricks from one of the underworld's masters of criminal mischief.

    " Ok book. Not one of the best I have read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Ed Dodson | 4/6/2013

    " Ed McBain does not come off as believable when writing about Musicians. This contains a recurring character from the book, Calypso, which I also thought was rather lame. "

    " I like McBain, however... good story, reliable characters, good hook at the end(though I saw it coming), but there was just something about it. "
