You'll find the usual McBain mix here: vivid description, tight dialogue, frequent changes of location. You'll never find a dull sentence, or a lifeless piece of dialogue. It was published in the year 2000. If the drama sags slightly and the imaginative force is not as strong as the punch that hits you in some of the earlier McBain crime novels, bear in mind that this is the fiftieth time McBain has worked with this highly successful formula.
McBain's two greatest strenghts are the absorbing readability of his work, and his gift for producing dialogue in his books which is actually like real-life conversations. They are both found in this, his most recent novel of the 87th Precinct.
The dialogue was too disjoined at times to be convincing, and the story could have been more tighly written.
