The only person Detective Bert Kling cares about in this world is his fiancée, Claire Townsend. And when her body is found slain at the infamous “bookstore massacre,” Bert and every detective in the precinct is determined to get the man responsible. To do so, they’re going to have to figure out the connection between a junkie, a professor, a bookstore owner, and the beautiful fiancée of a cop. When they do, there will be nowhere for the killer to hide.
A devastating look at the personal side of a hardened detective, Lady, Lady, I Did It! is a gut-wrenching addition to Ed McBain’s 87th Precinct series, and it paints, in sharp relief, the squad room’s familial bonds and the price paid for violating its sanctity.
“McBain has the ability to make every character believable - which few writers these days can do.” (Associated Press)
“McBain forces us to think twice about every character we meet…even those we thought we already knew.” (New York Times Book Review)
