Publisher Description

This lively novel—the fifty-second in the award-winning 87th Precinct series—follows the exploits of Ed McBain's most beloved and foul-mouthed detective, Fat Ollie Weeks.

All at once, Fat Ollie Weeks had a truly brilliant idea...

But as any real writer could tell you, that's how inspiration strikes -- with the sudden force of a violent crime. Known more for his foul mouth and short temper than his way with words, Detective Weeks has written a novel. But just as Isola is rocked by the murder of a mayoral candidate, the only copy of Ollie's manuscript is stolen -- and an all-too-real adventure begins as a thief follows Ollie's fictional blueprint to find a $2 million cache of nonexistent diamonds. Now, the 87th Precinct races to bring poetic justice to a cold-blooded assassin -- and someone's about to add another chapter to the colorful career of Ollie Weeks, a cop who's never played by the book....

Fat Ollie's Book

Either you like Ed Mc Bain's 87th Precinct novels or you don't. This one is better than some but worse than most as it contains large portions of the book written by one of the detectives. The syntax and vocabulary errors he makes get old in a hurry. Still, the characters in the book are entertaining as always and the plot was interesting. I'm glad I bought and read the book.
