I have read two other books in Ed McBain s acclaimed 87th Precinct books I was in a bit of a book slump so I thought I would check out The Con Man the 4th in the series I like this series because it is realistic the characters are usually likable they are fast reads and you can read them out of order I especially like the older ones so far because it shows me a glimpse of what the police system was like in an urban area in the 1950 s It s a fun little blast to the pastIn The Con Man police are hunting down the killer of women who are found poisoned and washed up from a local river Both women have strange tattoos on their hands and seemed to have been plain looking women in life Meanwhile a series of con acts are taking money from citizens everywhere and the precinct is eager to stop it Are the two crime acts linkedOk so out of the three books I ve read this is my least favourite I feel like the con artist scenes are too long and dragging but the murder solving is uite interesting Yes this book is outdated but I love that uality sometimes It is fun to see what people thought and said at the time What I do love is the character Teddy wife of the officer Carella She is a deaf and mute woman who helps her husband solve the crime Her uniue situation provides great entertainment and adds heightened suspense since she can t hear or even call for help The last few scenes are fun and intense and I can t help but love herWhile this book is my least favourite of the three I ve read due too the few long dull scenes it is still not a bad book I will without a doubt read 87th Precinct books in the future If you are looking for lightning fast reads with a lot of suspense then I recommend this series Desperately Seeking Someone Life Goes On Desperately Seeking Someone #2 you are looking for lightning fast reads with a lot of suspense then I recommend this series

The Con Man by Ed McBain is the 4th book in his 87th Precinct cop series It s a simple cop story relatively but at the same time for all of its simplicity also very richTwo crimes are being investigated by the detectives of the 87th Precinct Arthur Brown Det 2nd Grade is looking into a pair of con men who are ripping off people Det Steve Carella is investigating the discovery of a floater the body of a woman found in the river apparently murdered I enjoy the process of the various investigations the methodical nature and introduction to the other departments Missing Persons bureau the daily Line up where detectives from the various divisions come together to review the line up of people arrested I enjoyed that section very muchI also enjoyed the meeting of the various detectives spouses and girl friends as they also added to the story especially Carella wife Teddy deaf and mute but still a force to be reckoned with The story is so well paced and in the one case McBain ramps up the tension until the final outcome The story is so fascinating and it draws you in immediately I liked the detectives their family and the tattoo artist Mr Chen Just a great enjoyable crime story and a most satisfying ending 45 stars
