The Boys from Grover Avenue
Ed McBain's 87th Precinct Novels
George N. Dove

Popular Press

Ed McBain is a master of tone. He turns his material just a little off-axis. George Dove's study of McBain's imaginary city is both insightful and realistic. He gets at the heart of this major writer of police procedurals by examining the geography, the day-to-day happenings, and literary quality.
