This is book number 5 in the 87th Precinct series.


Annie Boone is dead. She was shot four times in the chest, pieces of the liquor store's windows spread over her body like raindrops from a lethal storm. For 87th Precinct Detectives Carella, Kling, and newcomer Hawes, even more troubling is the loss of one of their own. Detective Roger Havilland is murdered shortly thereafter, a shard of glass through his jugular.

Faced with a host of suspects--from Annie's former mother-in-law to her ex-husband, employer, and a string of boyfriends--the detectives find themselves with a victim whose identity spurns all conventional definition. She was the store's well as a divorced mother, pool shark, society lady, drunk, and patron of the ballet. Each facet of her life has a corresponding potential suspect. The only way for Carella and the men to find her killer--and maybe that of Havilland, too--is to find out who she really was. The problem is, the only one who really knew her died in a shower of glass.

A brooding, mesmerizing psychological thriller, Killer's Choice is a stunning addition to mystery icon Ed McBain's 87th Precinct series. Its complex plotting and extraordinary intensity, which culminates in an explosive finish, will leave you breathless.
