When a young woman's body washes up in the Harb River, the answer to that question becomes tragically clear. Now Detective Steve Carella races against time to find him before another con turns deadly. The only clue he has to go on is the mysterious tattoo on the young woman’s hand - but it’s enough. Carella takes to the streets, searching its darkest corners for a man who cons his victims out of their money... and their lives.
A crime-fiction classic, The Con Man is the third book in the 87th Precinct series from Ed McBain, whom the Daily Mirror has hailed as "the undisputed master...there’s nobody who does it better."

I enjoyed #1, kinda. It almost appears the author gets paid by the word with all his going off in tangents about nothing to do with the story line. If I was reading instead of listening I could skip three or four pages at a time, as it is, I usually fall asleep before the good parts. And there are good parts, story line, and mystery reading,(listening). It just takes awhile so I'll skip ahead to the last couple of books and see if I have any more patience with those!
