This latest in McBain's 87th Precinct series is possibly his last, as he died last fall. This time the detectives are challenged by a serial killer who fails to follow any of the established psychological profiles. Charles Stransky's variety of New York accents adds just the right flavor to the story. As the detectives, he conveys a no-nonsense directness. When portraying the other characters, his delivery of the multiple accents of the New York City melting pot enhances the story, whether the character is male or female. His interpretation of the killer is disturbingly benign, a characteristic that gives listeners the intended chill and keeps them involved to the end.
