Shelve Ed McBain: Seven 87th Precinct Novels.

I never cared much about reading Ed McBain and his 87th Precinct novels. I didn't care much for the Cop on the beat character. All those hard, cynical, worn out Detectives yelling and beating up suspects in the back room. I didn't like the big city backdrop, all those neighborhood bars, neon lights, dreary tenements.

Ed McBain (Evan Hunter) casts a huge shadow over police procedural mysteries. It seemed to me that McBain really hit his stride with this book. The 87th Precinct and the city began to come to life for me. I began to care about the characters. To long time readers, this 3rd entry in the 87 Precinct Series is a welcome visit by an old friend. McBain writing, sometimes a little overly dramatic and overly descriptive, delivers a neat tight story in under 200 pages. McBain was chosen to "replace" Earle Stanley Gardner and came up with an idea for a series where the Hero would be the detective squad not an individual.

Another good book in this series. Each book is a standalone novel and unlike many series you don't have to read them in order to enjoy them and understand what is going on. Ed McBain is known for great police procedure mysteries and if you enjoy this genre you won't be disappointed. Just remember this was written in the 70's before DNA testing and all the other technology we now have available. Here is your chance to enjoy a police procedural mystery novel where the characters have to solve crimes with their minds and imagination, not technology.

Who else but Ed McBain could open a police procedural novel with a two page description of the city in winter? Who else could make that city as much a character in the story as the people in it? Who else could make the exact amount of chemicals mixed to do a test in a police lab interesting?

This, the third book in the series, published almost 60 years ago, is as fresh and engaging as it was when it first hit the shelves. Sure, some of the dialog and some of the details McBain writes sounds dated now but good writing and good storytelling never goes stale. And make no mistake about it, Ed McBain is a good – make that great – storyteller.

In many ways, this is a much more cerebral novel than many of the others. McBain treats us to more introspection by Steve Carella and other characters - his wife, Teddy, and Lieutenant Byrnes - here.

This is the 41st novel in the series that I’ve read. Only 16 more to go before I’ve read them all. But then, I’ll be sad because I won’t have any more to read.

Ed McBain (Evan Hunter) casts a huge shadow over police procedural mysteries. To long time readers, this 3rd entry in the 87 Precinct Series is a welcome visit by an old friend. McBain writing, sometimes a little overly dramatic and overly descriptive, delivers a neat tight story in under 200 pages. McBain was chosen to "replace" Earle Stanley Gardner and came up with an idea for a series where the Hero would be the detective squad not an individual. Cops would come, go, and sometimes die, but the precinct would endure. Thus was born the police procedural. He chose not a single city, but to create an anonymous archetype; more real than Batman's Gotham but just as gritty. At the time it was fresh and original, now it seems cliche, but only because some many other authors have borrowed from and were inspired by his writings. In fact, just looking at the current crop of police television shows, you can see just how influential McBain continues to be. To long time readers, I recommend re-reading Pusher. To those who have yet to discover McBain, this was my first 87th Precinct book, and from the first page I was hooked.

I really enjoyed this novel. Like the other early 87th Precinct novels, this has a police environment, a crime mystery, and a very intense soap opera drama - this one around teenager heroin addiction that hits too close to home. I would give it 5 stars, but I notice that readers far more experienced in the 87th Precinct books tend to save 5 stars for the one or two truly exceptional novels in the series. This is only my fourth one, and I'm delighted to have discovered McBain/Hunter. I plan to read through the entire series in order.

I have read many of the McBain 87th Precinct books, but this was by far the best I've read. If I hadn't read the author's ending note, I would have guessed this was the last book and that he was going to kill off his hero. The story of a young junkie who was killed by a pusher to get the Lieutenant in his pocket by framing the Lieutenant's son and the story of Carella and his wife Teddy made this a book that was hard to put down. I read it in one sitting and loved it. The fact that there's no modern technology makes this a classic. I want to read more.

I've been reading and enjoying Ed McBain for years. The Pusher is one of the earliest in the 87th Precinct series. Pure escapism reading that goes fast and keeps you interested, even when read in short bursts like I usually do. The story starts with a staged suicide, dives into drugs, throws in a couple of murders and winds up with a win for the good guys. Kick back and enjoy the read.

Good continuation of the previous book. Wonderful approach to a great series. Looking forward to the next one. Wonderful. Wonderful.

As with the previous 87th precinct books, McBain tells a great story with interesting characters and a great plot. McBain's dialogue is excellent as always.
