A pop writer is found stabbed to death with nineteen separate wounds, in his locked apartment, and a women is stabbed in front of his apartment building from a single thrust. Are the deaths related? Detectives Steve Carella and Cotton Hawes are drawn into unraveling the mystery, including the apparent robbery of the writer's girlfriend's jewelry. The girlfriend (and her twin sister) look just like Carella's deaf-mute wife, and seem to crave his attention. Meanwhile, it is snowing both in Isola and up in the remote Massachusetts town where the writer's ex-wife drowned. The ghost stuff seemed a little forced to me or I would have rated this a 4. ( )

This is McBain's British mystery moment, with famous authors, psychics, and as the title suggests...you know whats. It's fun, and in a departure for this series, almost totally focused on Detective Carella--more a Carella novel than an 87th Precinct play. Good plotting as usual, with a satisfying wind-up. ( )

My first introduction to both the author and the 87th precinct series. I usually like to start a series on the first book but liked the sound of this so thought I would give it a try.

A woman is found stabbed to death on an icy pavement, whilst inside the adjacent apartment a prominent writer has also been killed. It appears the woman may have been an innocent bystander who had to be killed to protect the killers identity. Steve Carella is assigned the case and soon meets the deceased writers partner, who just happens to be a medium and bares a more that fleeting resemblance to the detectives wife. She begins to have various supernatural predictions that seemingly start to come true. Can he solve the case?

A really well written mystery with a touch of of the ghostly side thrown in for good measure. I have read that this was a bit of detour for the author and not something you would usually find in his books. A book of its time (early 80's) you will enjoy getting lost in the world of the 87th precinct. I enjoyed this so much I went out and bought a few more so I could start at the beginning. ( )

Do you believe in ghosts? And, if you did, would you admit it? These are the questions that Homicide Detective Steve Carella has to live with after teaming up with a medium to investigate a series of murders. Even though the murderer turns out to the garden variety human, the idea that ghosts exist is introduced in this police thriller, and I don't know about you, but I believe! ( )

This was part of my birthday book-shopping spree this year, and I'm glad it caught my eye. A well-written thriller is better than any home remedy, really. I'm glad to be introduced to the 87th Precinct series, and indeed, to Ed BcBain.
It's a gruesomely gripping read, both chilling and hilarious, and definitely delivers the goods as far as police procedurals go. I'm torn between really liking the idea of some questions remaining unanswered, and allowing my unsatisfied curiosity to gnaw at the overall good feeling I have about this novel. Admittedly, the supernatural element came as a bit of a surprise, but given the title and the atmosphere of the novel, I wonder what I'd been expecting.
The story is set in a very credibly written universe, and the characters are constructed to satisfaction, so I'm rather looking forward to my next 87th Precinct novel. ( )
