McBain, Ed - Fat Ollie's Book

New York, Simon & Schuster, 2002. First edition. Fat Ollie Weeks of the 88th precinct has caught a murder along with Kling and Carella of the 87th.  Previously, Ollie's passions had pretty much been limited to bigotry and food, but the theft of his manuscript reignites a passion for detective work that surprises his colleagues. The fifty-second (of an eventual fifty-five) of the 87th precinct series. Fine in DJ. $25.00.
