5.0 out of 5 stars Fulfils expectations!
Superb, as usual. The Deaf Man teases the detectives at the 87th - again. Impossible to guess the outcome. Just what is needed from a top quality police detective book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ed's Still Got It..., 24 Oct. 2010

Over the years I've read all of the 87th Precinct novels written between the 50s through to the 70s, but came to this one (written in 1984) only recently. It served as a reminder of McBain's ear for dialogue, pacing and development of plot and his ability to make the characters (including the villains) interesting. It's another page turner right to the end - a master at work.

4.0 out of 5 stars A weird, chilling mystery, 15 Jun. 2006
By 
Two nightsticks, three pairs of handcuffs, four police hats, five walkie-talkies, six police shields, seven Wanted posters, eight black horses... where would it all end, and how? As Christmas got nearer, the boys of the 87th precinct grew more and more nervous - and mystified. They thought it must have something to do with their old adversary, the Deaf Man. But was he also involved in the murder of the woman whose naked body had been found in the park? And why was he pretending to be Detective Steve Carella? Above all, what would be the equivalent of the seasonal partridge in the pear tree, let alone the twelve lords a-leaping. What did it all mean?
