And homicide Fuzz was the basis of a major motion picture starring Burt Reynolds Rauel Welch and Yul Brynner.. Since I have been retired for uite a few years i decided to read the 87th Precinct series in order and I just finished number 22 This isn t one of my favorites and i am giving it a weak 3 stars about a 26 The plot wasn t as real and down to earth as usual with almost a comic book feel with a sort of super villain in the return of the deaf man I also like that the luckiness of things accidentally falling into place seemed to give credence to the deaf man s poor opinion of the police I checked back to The Heckler and in my review I also pointed my misgivings about the deaf man This is what I said then and I feel the same way about the return I m not sure I like the direction this entry is taking Up to now they have been good combination of police procedural and good action The characters have been well developed and the plots interesting and realistic This book seems to be moving in the direction of a master criminal concept and I m not in favor of that move The Deaf Man strains the credibility that these stories have always had Unfortunately it appears that the deaf man is destined to reappear in a few entries in this series So far my favorite series entries have been Cop Hater The Mugger The Pusher The Con Man Killer s Choice Lady Killer King s Ransom Lady Lady I Did It Ax

    This is the first deaf man novel in the series that I've enjoyed And I'm not sure why I did Perhaps because the usual mayhem continued in the 87th Precinct as the detectives tried to unravel the deaf man's threats actions and plans Perhaps because I've had my nose in other books and hadn't read an 87th Precinct

    I love Ed McBain His books are serious comic irreverent and a joy to read And its amazing the range he had with the 87th Precinct Books of which this is one — and the lawyer Matthew Hope to Blackboard Jungle written as Evan HunterThis is the 12th in the percent books with all the usual characters working cops just trying to put away the bad guys And they have come across an old nemesis they thought was dead Steve Ca
