Three nerve-racking stories from bestselling author Ed McBain put detectives from the 87th Precinct on the trail of different killers who take the lives of a rich woman, a rabbi, and a ski instructor.
“McBain forces us to think twice about every character we meet…even those we thought we already knew.” —New York Times Book Review
“Imagine your favorite Law & Order cast solving fresh mysteries into infinity, with no re-runs, and you have some sense of McBain’s grand, ongoing accomplishment.” —Entertainment Weekly
