Long Time No See


Author: Ed McBain
0 (0 Votes)
It’s a cold November when James Harris takes his dog, Stanley, for their usual rounds of panhandling. Blind since Vietnam and married to a blind woman as well, James realizes his disability pension and her part-time job go only so far. The money he makes on the streets is desperately needed—yet it’s still not enough. But after today it won’t matter…When Detective Steve Carella finds James’ wife murdered as well, her throat slit like her husband’s, it is no longer a random crime. And when another blind woman turns up dead, all Carella has to go on is the nightmare James told a psychiatrist after coming home from the war ten years ago. What he finds is a labyrinthine trail of betrayal, sex, and a secret worth killing to keep buried.

An intricately woven and flawlessly layered thriller, Long Time No See is a live wire in the 87th Precinct series by Ed McBain, the bestselling author that People magazine describes as “a skillful writer who excels at pace, plot, and, especially, the complex clockwork of a cop’s mind.”
