Ed McBain, aka Evan Hunter, wrote more than eighty novels, including the influential and beloved "87th Precinct" series, the longest-running series of crime novels in history. His books have sold more than 100 million copies. He also wrote many screenplays, including the script for Alfred Hitchcock’s film The Birds. He has been named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America.From AudioFile:
Ed McBain's novels are like a comfortable pair of shoes-they fit well, and by the end of the day you're still glad you chose them. This one features Matt Cordell, a down-and-out former detective trying to put his life back together, who finds himself in the middle of a murder. Like the book, Richard Ferrone's reading is comfortable. Ferrone's style is all business, with a paced staccato delivery reminiscent of a classic radio program. The result is a performance in which the novel remains on center stage. And because this title is less than five hours long, it's ideal for short trips or a light listen on the beach.
