No. 10 - Tricks

by Ed McBain

Started: January 26
Finished: January 27

Notes: Keeping with my recent hard-boiled reading, I thought I'd return to my favorite and another in his long series of 87th Precinct novels. This one interests me because it takes place on a Halloween night, and two decades before 24, this novel is supposed to take place entirely within one shift of the precinct.

Mini review: Another excellent read from McBain. Perhaps the most tense one yet, with several plots running alongside one another, sometimes rubbing shoulders. I can't get enough of this author. I'm going to have to try out some of his fiction besides the 87th Precinct stories, but I've still got plenty of those stories to read, too.
