A must for die hard Ed McBain fansJune 7 2000
- Published on Amazon.com
Anybody who is a diehard 87th precinct fan will surely find this book useful. Mr. Dove has gone through all of Ed McBain's books from Cop Hater through Ice and discusses everything from the characters, the city, the criminals and crimes, McBain's writing style, and more, all in a well written book of analysis and info. I would have liked to have seen more maps of the city and more questions answered but other than that, I enjoyed reading this. I hope Mr. Dove will write an updated version.
