One of the Masters Has Passed On....

Crime Fiction Dossier: Evan Hunter (Ed McBain), R.I.P.: "Ed was one of the greats of the mystery genre -- his 87th Precinct novels were the standard for police procedurals. I don't know how many
books he wrote over his long career (100? more?) but he was one of the most important influences in crime fiction over the latter half of the 20th century."

Hear, hear...McBain/Hunter was always one I could depend on for a great read.
