Amazon Review

Steve Carella, Meyer Meyer and Fat Ollie Weeks have been working the 87th Precinct for more than 40 years, but they're still the top dicks in town for devotees of Ed McBain's absorbing police procedurals, of which Money, Money, Money is one.

When a pretty, red-haired, ex-military pilot is killed, the boys in blue blunder around for a few chapters before they unmask her secret life as a drug courier. By then the burglar who broke into Cass Ridley's apartment and stole the "tip" she got for her last run has already tried to spend one of the $100 bills from her stash, attracting the attention of the Secret Service. The "superbill" is phoney, and by the time Carella and his crew uncover the international counterfeit ring behind it, McBain has taken the action up a notch with a terrorist plot to bomb Clarendon (read Carnegie) Hall, where an eminent Israeli violinist is performing. There's also a conspiracy involving a publishing company whose sales reps are so venal and violent you might think they were the creation of a writer who blamed them when his last book failed to sell. Not so McBain, who can't have too many complaints in that department. His publisher's reps have been living well for decades on the commissions earned on McBain's books (including those of Evan Hunter, his alter ego).

That he has kept this series going for so long without tricking up the plots, turning his characters into stereotypes or sacrificing their humanity is a tribute to his authorial gifts: expert pacing, sharp-edged dialogue, authenticity, wit and confidence. There's only one thing getting old in this, his 51st book in an evergreen series: the fictional convention that locates the 87th in a place called Isola instead of midtown Manhattan, where it so clearly is set. --Jane Adams --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"Kirkus Reviews" The complications flow so effortlessly and the tone is so irresistibly ebullient that you can relax in the hands of a master. Merry Christmas.

"The Calgary Sun" It's vintage McBain, fast, funny, and far-fetched....

"The Post and Courier" (Charleston, SC) An instant classic....It's McBain at his best. And there's none better.

"Publishers Weekly" McBain's "Money" is a sure bet....[His] writing remains young, vigorous, sharp, and entertaining.

"The New York Times" McBain plays fair and square with the complications that arise from this clever setup. Over and over, he keeps telling us to keep an eye on the money, which slips through more hands than a third-grade bathroom pass.

"St. Petersburg Times" (FL) Captivating stuff.

"The Plain Dealer" (Cleveland) Tight plotting, crackling police work, and bizarre people...a witty tale of counterfeit money that grows before the reader's eyes.

"The San Diego Union-Tribune" Chock-full of his customary crisp plotting, colorful characters, and wry humor....May [McBain], like his 87th Precinct, stay young forever.

By A Customer on 9 Nov. 2001
Format: Hardcover
Yes, Ed McBain is back with another 87th novel, his 50th (or is it 51st? I'm not sure), and what is most appalling is that he still keeps up the superb quality he established in the very first novels some 45 years ago!
This book is about drug dealing and false money, a well-constructed plot with the strong nerve and the outstanding dialogues that characterizes McBain's most novels. Furthermore, some of the leads in this novel seem to promise further action in the next book...
I often read other mystery novels, Anglo-Saxon as well as Swedish. But most of them turn me down by being poorly narrated. Or the plot is unconvincing or too "constructed". Therefore it is a true relief to recognize a vintage McBain.

By A Customer on 11 April 2002
Format: Hardcover
Only Ed McBain could make a story about drug trafficking and counterfeiting seem original. The other storyline about a terrorist plot was eerie in its timeliness.
The 87th precinct novels are the best police procedurals, EVER. My mission in life is to read them all (I'm almost there). The stories are captivating, the dialogue is too delicious. Reading an 87th precinct novel is like eating a sweet crunchy apple. You savor each bite, you never want it to end but you can't stop eating and all too soon you're done, and you're left wanting more.

This book has to be but on the must read list of all crime fiction fans. In normal Ed McBain fashion he grabs your attention right from the start with a horrific murder. He then takes you by the hand for a journey into the darkest corners of criminal behavour.
If you are an Ed McBain fan this book will not disappoint. If you've never picked up an Ed McBain book before this will introduce you to an author that has writen so many winning stories it will take you six mouths to catch us.
Enjoy, I did.

I've just started reading Ed McBain = Til Death and The Gutter and The Grave - so this is the third I've read and is easily the best - a real page tuner with a fantastic gripping story - I love his characterisation (something lost in a lot of thrillers) - Wiggy, the black drug dealer and Will Struthers - fantastic - I used to be a big Spillane fan but these books are a lot better and I can see myself reading many more (fortunately there are a lot to read)- I've already started Alice in Jeopardy. Well done McBain.

I had stopped reading Ed Mcbain and started reading love stories with a happy ending. Now I have started reading him again, I wondered why I stopped.
This is a great storyline, its a bit complicated but it all pans out in the end.
The boys at the 87th and the 88th get together and solve the mystery of the money and the lady eaten by
a lion!
Great book, he is the master!
