The Mysterious Bookshop

McBain, Ed, Killer's Wedge

A woman holds the entire 87th Precinct hostage with a homemade bomb and loaded handgun, but her only real target is none other than Detective Steve Carella.

“McBain forces us to think twice about every character we meet…even those we thought we already knew.” — New York Times Book Review

“The 87th Precinct [is] one of the great literary accomplishments of the last half-century.” — Pete Hamill, Newsday
