5.0 out of 5 stars 50 years and no drop in quality, 30 July 2005
This review is from: Hark! (87th Precinct) (Paperback)
I was surprised and delighted to find the deaf man return once more. Mcbain's books are always brilliant, but they just seem to go a notch higher when the deaf man turns up again.
This novel twists and turns and torments the police of the 87th Precinct, but is full of humour.
I can have only once criticism- The book is of the "Can't put down" variety and so seems to end way too soon. It must be time to start reading again from "Cop Hater"...
Ed Mcbain, Rest in peace

4.0 out of 5 stars More of the same!, 4 Dec 2006
This review is from: Hark! (87th Precinct) (Paperback)
The late, great, Ed McBain surprises everyone with the return of the Deaf Man, an infamous villain, thief and murderer, as Steve Carella, detective-in-charge of a seemingly motiveless killing, begins to receive cryptic messages with Shakespearean references that eventually point to only one man. McBain's oeuvre never fails to thrill, and with brilliant characters and densely layered storylines, the 87th Precinct series thoroughly deserves a place alongside the works of antecedents Hammett and Chandler in the Crime Writers' Hall of Fame.

The first one of the series that I have read which is up to date in terms of what is happening in the world. Fabulous plot with a surprising ending. 87th Precinct characters are still being developed. They are becoming familiar now. Another solid McBain production.
