This review is from: The Last Dance (87th Precinct Mysteries) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is Ed McBain at his 87th Precinct best. It reads with the freshness of his early novels, but by allowing the core characters to age gracefully you can be forgiven for forgetting that this series was started nearly 50 years ago. The plot has the usual twists and turns, and the sub-story of the lives of Carella, Meyer, Brown et al, brings a realism often missing from long-running series. Whether you are a confirmed McBain fan (like me) or reading this as your first foray into the 87th Precinct, you won't be disappointed.
