I always like NOCTURNE. McBain was writing longer versions of the 87th Precinct novels and the stories became more complex.

Indeed, George! Very glad Patti chose McGain for today's "themed" issue of FFB.

I'd put off reading McB for decades after a false start so long ago I can't recall which 87th I read (or tried to read--it wasn't my cup of tea at the time). Thanks to Patti I'm back in the precinct. And thanks for this tip on Nocturne, BV.

Hope you can find a McBain book that appeals to you, Matt. With luck, one of the books on Patti's FFB list today might fill the bill ...
