An old woman is found shot to death, and the detectives of the 87th Precinct begin one more endless night in the city where things are seldom as they appear to be. This gem shows why McBain is the king of the police procedural novel. He also does a superb job reading with just the right touch of big-city cynicism to highlight the humor and pathos of his tale. McBain's gritty voice serves him well as he switches characters and accents smoothly without compromising the pace of his tale. Bluesy jazz riffs nicely mark scene changes. P.B.J.
