No. 29 - Hark!

by Ed McBain

Started: May 21
Finished: May 27

Notes: The last book I read was pretty intense, so I thought it was time for another quick, fun read. As often happens, I turn to Ed McBain. This is another 87th Precinct novel to feature the serial villain, the Deaf Man. Published in 2004, making it one of the last of McBain's works.

Mini review: Another fine read! Too bad it's the last Deaf Man novel, and nearly the last work of fiction for the 87th Precinct since McBain passed away the year after this novel was published. But McBain wrote plenty, and had much to be proud of. A toast to him!
