No. 17 - Hail, Hail, The Gang's All Here!

by Ed McBain

Started: March 4
Finished: March 7

Notes: I was going to take a break from this author, at least for a book or two, but my mind just isn't in the mood to tackle anything more complex. So, here's another from my favorite hardboiled writer. This one's from 1971.

Mini review: Quite the appropriate title, and a different kind of plotting for these books. Usually McBain's 87th Precinct novels focus on a couple of detectives and a couple of crimes, but this one focuse on multiple crimes (both big and small) and a whole day's worth of detectives (two shifts) who have to deal with everything.
