Audio Book Summary

Ed McBain's latest installment in the 87th Precinct series finds the detectives stumped by a serial killer who doesn't fit the profile. A blind violinist taking a smoke break, a cosmetics sales rep cooking an omelet in her own kitchen, a college professor trudging home from class, a priest contemplating retirement in the rectory garden, an old woman out walking her dog-these are the seemingly random targets shot twice in the face.

But most serial killers don't use guns. Most serial killers don't strike five times in two weeks. And most serial killers' prey share something more than being over fifty years of age. Now it falls to Detective Steve Carella and his colleagues in the 87th Precinct to find out what-or whom-the victims had in common before another body is found. With trademark wit and sizzling dialogue, McBain unravels a mystery and examines the dreams we chase in the darkening hours before the fiddlers have fled.

    This book is awful. First, the story line kept me rewinding and rehearing. Second, the person reading the book was worse than horrible. I barely got thru half of the first tape and gave it up. Really -

    I liked this book, but it did not make me go "the long way home" to keep listening. It did not stay with me either. It was good and it did pass the time in the car.

    Liked the book, but thought it was not McBain's best. Characters are as interesting as always in his books, but thought the book a little slow at times.
