One of the best of the bunch. com User, December 22, 2007. The first "Eighty-Seventh Precinct" novel was written in 1956, "Ten Plus One" is the seventeenth and was written in 1963. I would say that it is probably the best up to this time. The novel is well paced and the idea behind the murders is slowly reveals liked the pealing of an artichoke.

Only McBain could make the weather a character.

Only McBain could make the quoting of the penal code engaging.

I’m down to 7 unread books in this series, and I am <i>not</i> looking forward to the day I read that last one.

For all the usual reasons I love to read the 87th Precinct stories, this one had more of the same. A case that really isn't solved until the end, without giving away too much of anything. Some surprises that turn out to be key parts to the story. In the case of this story, it is not discovering that the list of victims were the performers of a long-forgotten college play. Plus, the usual banter between the Precinct's detectives like Carrell and Meyer Meyer is excellent. What more can I say? Excellent story as usual.

Well, true to form, McBain produced another interesting read... and it was obvious who did it as soon as they appeared in the book.
The Rollers of Vildar
McBain does a competent job of writing crime thrillers, so this is a safe book to buy to kill a few hours with some decent reading.

I think he really shines at injecting bits of humor into the story line, moreso than any other writer that I've read in the genre (eg compared to Grisham). (At least I get 3 or 4 really good laughs out of each book, so I think the humor is funny; you might not...)

Loved this storyline, not a typical one. Simple yet not readily apparent. Made me feel sad for Margaret, she couldn't get a break.

The mysteries written under the name of Ed McBain are set in another era. This is not great literature, but the books are great fun. Simply put - who done it? I've read several of these as the result of Amazon specials. These are airport books - on the go reading.
