Perspectives on McBain

Amazon Exclusive: Perspectives on McBain: Crime fiction master Ed McBain, also known as Evan Hunter, penned more than 115 books (among them the 87th Precinct and Matthew Hope series) and numerous screenplays, including the one for Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds. He is considered the father of the police procedural and hardboiled crime genres.

To celebrate the rerelease of much of his work, now available for the first time in digital format, Amazon Publishing imprint Thomas & Mercer asked a group of acclaimed mystery and thriller authors to tell us how Ed McBain influenced them:
