If you people like good stories get some of these books and read them.
The best there is out there...
Evan Hunter, the author who, writing as Ed McBain, "virtually invented the American police procedural," according to The New York Times, died on July 6th at his home in Weston, Conn.
His works, which include books, film scripts, short stories, and more--all written under a variety of pseudonyms over a 50-year period--define the genre to this day.
Rest in peace Evan/Ed, your work will last forever.
My favourite writer. Really terrific & realistic dialogue.Even minor characters have a soul. I love Fat Ollie.
Hello Melissa, I see this post is quite old, but I'm new to Mystery Net. I just read my first 87th Precinct novel, and really enjoyed it. I always try to cast the detectives in novels I read, so I was intriguied by your message. I would be extremely interested in your list of actors for the 87th Precinct. Would you mind printing it here? If not, please send me an e-mail at email@example.com. My curiosity is definately piqued! Best regards, Chris.
Dear Fran, I just saw your post on the death of Evan Hunter. May he rest in peace. I would love to see an 87th Precinct television series, but I suppose that's too much to hope for. Best regards, Chris.
Hello Barbara, I will check the internet soon. I believe there was a 1960's series that had Robert Lansing as Steve, and Gena Rowlands as Teddy. I will check, and get back to you. Best regards, Chris.
