Author(s): Ed McBain
A killer in the 87th Precinct is leaving behind severed hands as calling cards, putting Detectives Carella and Hawes back on the streets to end this murderous, gruesome streak. 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 McBain has the ability to make every character believable which few writers these days can do. Associated Press"
