Books read in 2012: No. 53 -- Kiss

by Ed McBain

Started: June 13
Finished: June 16

Notes: The last couple of McBain novels I've read have not been 87th Precinct novels, and I'm kind of missing the old gang. So I decided to grab down this gem from my to-be-read pile. It's about a wealthy blonde who is being hunted by a killer, and the police officer who tries to protect and save her. (I'm guessing the Steve Carella character since he's most often the protagonist in this series).

Mini review: Well, drat. This one was about half courtroom drama, which I tend to not enjoy so much. Still, the police action was McBain's usual superb material. Maybe I should just take a break from McBain for a while, at least to give me some time away from the courtroom stuff.
