Anthony BoucherThere have been a number of recent attempts at establishing an American type of police-routine novel patterned after such TV programs as "Dragnet" or "Line-Up." Much the most successful of these efforts to date is Ed McBain's Cop Hater, the narrative of a series of murders of policemen in a fictional city which is not quite New York. McBain has caught TV's semi-documentary flavor excellently. He's written a tough, sexy novel with inherent honesty and decency.
