KILLER’S CHOICE (Police Procedural) – VG Ed McBain – 6th in series
The Armchair Detective Library, 1991 (Reprint from 1958) – Hardcover


The detectives of the 87th precinct are looking for the killer of one of their own, have gained a new member of the squad, Cotton Hawes, and looking for the person who murdered a young woman.

This edition is particularly enjoyable as it includes an introduction by the author talking about introducing Hawes to the series. Reading the 87th precinct books is always a delight; tight plots, crisp dialogue, well-drawn characters, good humor and excellent sense of place and time; all in fewer than 200 pages. McBain’s books are truly a master class in detective fiction. It doesn’t get better than this.
