Ed McBain's 87th Precinct



westcoasttonyWestcoasttony on 04/21/2009

EdMcBains87thPrecinct Photo Ed McBain created over 50 novels of the 87th Precinct, collectively among the finest and most influential “police procedural” novels ever written. You are invited to try your luck on these questions about the series and the titles of some of the books. I hope you find this quiz enjoyable and that it inspires you to investigate this fine series further.

Sources for the information are Robin Smiley’s excellent article on McBain in the April 2007 “Firsts” Magazine, and the books themselves.
