HARK! (Police Procedural-Fictional City-Cont) – G
McBain, Ed – 54th in series
Simon & Schuster, 2004- Hardcover
The members of the 87th precinct are receiving notes, lots of notes. Some are quotes from Shakespeare, some are anagrams, some are palindromes, and all are from the Deaf Man once again challenging the 87th to figure out what he's going to do and when.
This is not the book with which to start the series, as there are too many references to previous books. It's also not the best of the series as, while the clues were fun, they became tiring and I wanted to story to move along. There is an excellent secondary character to the Deaf Man, which was fun. If you're a fan of the series and have a plane to catch, take this along. Otherwise, I'd go back and start much earlier in the series.
