Thanks for the review - I'm slowly making my way through them all and have come to the point where Ollie Weeks was introduced into the series, though at that point he was attached to the 83rd! It is interesting to note how the language got a lot more extreme once it reached the 70s (which is where I am in the series now) - great review, thanks.

I've always liked NOCTURNE. Like you, I appreciate the touches of whimsy in McBain's work. He was a crafty writer.

And prolific, too, George! I am envious of his work ethic and ability to crank out so many books in several series.
