Simply the best writer of police procedurals.

That's true. No contest.

Just a couple of more comments. My Uncle Johnny was an old time city cop who retired as a homicide detective. I often asked him about details in the 87th Precinct series and McBain always had them right.

It's also worth remembering that the same man that wrote those great 87th Precinct books also wrote the scripts for Strangers When We Meet and The Birds. One of my writing heroes.

McBain was a master. He should have been much better known.
