OK, now I have a problem. After giving all the previous books in the 87th Precinct series 5 stars, I don't know where to go next. 5++?
I really enjoyed this excursion, as Ed McBain continues brings different characters to the fore in this classic ensemble series. And there are some true laugh-out-loud moments (such as the diversion into defining a "slob").
On the audio version narrated by Dick Hill: others disagree, I know, but I reckon Dick Hill is brilliantly cast for this series. He really delivers what I think is a stellar performance that is absolutely in keeping with the sensibilities of the material. Yes, he goes over the top sometimes. But so does McBain!
