****************************************************** Its the 87th Precinct and what can you possibly find not to like about them? They're brutally realistic, cleverly plotted and intelligently resolved. Add McBain's clever dialog and descriptive talent and nearly everyone of these is a winner. I've seldom been disappointed by any of McBain's work, but the 87th series is nearly as good as it gets.
