A con man is plying his trade on the streets of Isola: conning a domestic for pocket change, businessmen for thousands, and even ladies in exchange for a little bit of love. You can see the world, meet a lot of nice people, imbibe some unique drinks, and make a ton of money… all by conning them for their cash. The question is: How far is he willing to go?

When a young woman’s body washes up in the Harb River, the answer to that question becomes tragically clear. Now Detective Steve Carella races against time to find him before another con turns deadly. The only clue he has to go on is the mysterious tattoo on the young woman’s hand - but it’s enough. Carella takes to the streets, searching its darkest corners for a man who cons his victims out of their money… and their lives.

A crime-fiction classic, The Con Man is the third book in the 87th Precinct series from Ed McBain, whom the Daily Mirror has hailed as “the undisputed master…there’s nobody who does it better.”

    " Love, love, LOVE Ed McBain books. Started reading them and collecting them when i was about 12, but i've not read any for a long time, so it is a real pleasure to rediscover the 87th Precinct. Starting to find some of the books from the list that i've never managed to get, Cop Hater being one of them. His books are funny, witty, clever and have great characters. I particularly love the descriptiveness of the seasons, the cities and the people. Can't wait to read the next find! "

    " Det. Carella, with help from his wife Teddy, tracks down a killer and/or con man in the 87th. Terribly plotted and terribly racist. Other than those not insignificant issues, generally pretty readable. "
