Along the way, they look at the context and time in which they were written, their influence and influences and absolutely anything else that might come to mind.
This is three friends hoping to share their love of reading these books with you, something that has been at the heart of their friendship for a long time. They hope to keep the spotlight on Ed McBain and encourage you to explore and share in their passion.

**Hark! It's an 87th Precinct Bonus Episode!**
We continue to discuss the 1963 novel, Ten Plus One, or rather our copies and the various original editions of it, once we've got the important matter of "Poirot and The Spiral Staircase" out of the way (forgive us our indulgences. It was late. We'd got rather silly).
We also tackle a listener question which we'd love to hear your thoughts on: Who would make a good director for an 87th Precinct adaptation? We ponder the variables and make some suggestions. Paul also reveals more about adaptations that do exist, from Japan and Russia, and then presents Morgan and Stephen with presents all the way from America. We love each other dearly, you know!
Join us again for the next book in the series - "Ax" (1964) - and please keep contributing, sharing and commenting. Fare thee well!Read more »
