Critic Reviews

“McBain forces us to think twice about every character we meet…even those we thought we already knew.” ( New York Times Book Review)
“Imagine your favorite Law & Order cast solving fresh mysteries into infinity, with no re-runs, and you have some sense of McBain’s grand, ongoing accomplishment.” ( Entertainment Weekly)

Great all the way around

Dick Hill is the best, don't know how he does all these characters like he does but by now he makes me think I know them. Great entertainment!
