I have been reading McBain since the early 60's and he is the only (and I mean only) writer who is so consistent. Once you pick up this book,you can't put it down. I love his writing and the story is not as important as the consistently excellent writing which captures you from the first page and doesn't allow you to close the book until it's done. For anyone who loves to read, McBain's books are a must.

From the first page, I couldn't put this book down. What a great story...kept me guessing with each new development. Although I started to surmise what was really going on, I was very surprised with the ending. Anyone interested in a thoroughly enjoyable, fast-read, will love this one.

I was disappointed in this book, and it was difficult to believe Mr. McBain wrote it. Sloppy editing, unbelievable dialog, and boring.

At first I was reluctant to read this story because it wasn't about the 87th squad, but I took a chance on it and I enjoyed it. It kept me going until the end, I was trying to figure out suspects myself, thinking I knew who was doing this...the end surprised me a bit, but I had a slight hunch about who was behind it. Great Work

Months after her husband disappears at sea, a Florida soccer mom's two kids are grabbed with a demand for $250K. Breezy storytelling guided by McBain's tough-as-nails voice makes for an enjoyable read.

Eight months have passed since stockbroker Eddie Glendenning drowned off of Cape October on the Florida Gulf Coast. His wife Alice struggles to raise their two preadolescent children as her income dwindles to almost nothing while the life insurance company ¿eternally¿ processes her claim........................... As her bank account is almost empty, Alice unsuccessfully tries to sell real estate. Just when she thinks she is one step from bottoming out, she finds the chasm underneath her feet goes much deeper than she ever imagined. Her two children have been abducted by two people demanding a $250,000 ransom of which she can emit payment in the low four digits unless they accept credit; if she talks to the police, the kidnappers warn of dire consequences. Before Alice can decide what to do Rosie the housekeeper calls the cops. Suddenly Alice feels that she fell through the rabbit hole, as law enforcement, family members, friends, strangers, and other ilk turn her home into a three ring circus.............................. Whether it is a police procedural or a thriller, no one consistently does it better than Ed McBain does (almost feel sorry for the rest). His latest tale is terrific, hooking the audience from the start as Alice, already struggling for her and her children to survive while also mourning her loss, suddenly finds she falling through a rabbit hole. The story line is action-packed with a fabulous cast especially the heroine, but also humorous as everyone wants to assist (this reviewer kept thinking of Groucho Marx¿s ship cabin scene in A Night at the Opera. Bottom line is that Mr. McBain does it again with his latest triumph.......................... Harriet Klausner
