The Empty Hours (87th Precinct #15) review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB read ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Í Ed McBain Ed McBain Í 3 read & download Three chillers from the files of the 87th Precinct A young wealthy woman is found strangled to death in a slum apartment leaving behind only her name som. First of all the cover of the edition I read describes this thing as an 87th precinct novel It isn t a novel It s a collection of stories I like stories but if I begin reading something with the idea that it s a novel I don t like discovering that it isn t when I get to page 90 I get it that novels sell better than short story collections but please don t mislead me about what I m readingSecond of all this collection isn t very good The titular story is remarkably predictable and completely lacking in any kind of suspense The second story about the murder of a rabbi is a little better but McBain goes way out of his way to explain details of Judaism that even a meshugenah goy like myself understands The third story is different from most of the 87th Precinct series and it s the best of the three in this collection Instead of taking place in McBain s fictional stand in for New York it takes place at a remote snowed in ski resort and instead of the whole team Detective Hawes has to solve it by himself while arguing with idiot local cops By the way it s pretty dumb of McBain to set his regular 87th precinct stories in a fictional city based on New York People love New York and they love reading stories set there This fictional version feels off and unnecessary and is clearly a mistake
