Ed McBain concocts a brilliant and intricate thriller about a
master criminal who haunts the city with cryptic passages from
Shakespeare, directing the detectives of the 87th Precinct to a
future crime -- if only they can figure out what he means.
The 87th Precinct gets a visit from one of the city's most
accomplished criminals -- a thief known as the Deaf Man. Because he
might be deaf. Or he might not. So little is known about the man
who is harassing Detective Steve Carella with puzzling messages
that it is hard to tell. But as soon as a pattern emerges, the
detectives of the 87th are forced to hit the books and brush up on
their Shakespeare -- because each new clue contains a line from one
of his works. Unless they can crack the complicated riddles and
beat the Deaf Man at his own cat-and-mouse game, someone is going
to end up hurt, or something will be stolen -- or both. It's always
so hard to tell with the Deaf Man.
Ed McBain brings his most intelligent and devious criminal back
to the 87th Precinct with a richly plotted and literary crime.
