McBain's 87th Precinct novels feature the cast of Carella and his associates. This one also features "Fat Ollie" Weeks of the 88th precinct, who has become increasingly well established as a character in the more recent books in the series. Fans of McBain, and that is a large collection of people, will find all the elements they have come to expect, and admirers of Weeks will be especially pleased. Garrick Hagon provides a well-paced reading that keeps the listener involved. In giving the large cast distinctive voices, he is most successful with Weeks; his 87th Precinct voices seem less individualized. But this does not detract from the pleasure of the listen.
