Whenever the Deaf Man visits the 87th Precinct, you may rest assured that the story will be a cut above the already excellent series’ entries. There are three concurrent crime plots in this issue, one involving a very efficient burglar who manages to gain entry into upscale apartments while the owners are on vacation without leaving any trace of forced entry. Ed McBain handled this genre as few others. His ear for dialogue and abilities to write convincingly- whether he’s describing a crime scene or the sensuous curve of a woman’s leg- is extraordinary and reading his work is always a pleasure.

The Deaf Man starts sending photostats of photographs addressed to Carella. First to arrive is a photo of J. Edgar Hoover, a copy of which is then sent again shortly afterwards. This is then followed by two of George Washington, then of a Japanese zero plane, silent film star Vilma Banky and an American football teams all of which are reproduced in the book. The delivery of the manila envelopes, always addressed to Carella, becomes almost a routine.

Comments to eBook Let's hear It for the Deaf Man (87th Precinct)
Enila
A young man is found nailed to a wall, the detectives of the 87 call this the Jesus case. A very successful cat burglar is plying his trade and leaving a little kitten as his calling card and as if this wasn't enough for the men of the 87 here comes the deaf man. The deaf man starts to send clues to the 87 but they are all addressed to Stephen Carella Detective 2nd grade. He and the deaf man had met before and the deaf man is challenging Carella to a new game.

After reading so many of these books I always looked forward to the next one because the men of the 87 became so familiar to me, I liked the characters, they were so well written as was the police procedure. Ed McBain nailed it.

I have always enjoyed Ed McBain. His characters are complex and his writing style is pure and simple. ...The Deaf Man character is mindful of Sherlock's Moriaty, intelligent and evil but fun for the reader to look forward to his comeuppance, hopefully.

A typical McBain collage; a phone call from a voice in the past, a cat burglar, a crucifixion, a man with an arrow through his chest, photostats of famous personalities, a romance and, out of nowhere, a philosophical interlude. Are they related? Will they eventually converge? Not to give too much away, wait for the surprises; they are waiting for you.
If you enjoy a good, old fashioned detective story and a pretty quick read, pick up this 1972, sit back and escape for a few hours.

There is a reason the 87th Precinct novels have remained so popular and this novel is a prime example, they are some of the best police mysteries that you will read. You do have to keep in mind these were written some in a time without all the technology we have now. These are books of a simpler time when the police detectives pitted their mind against the criminal`s mind. A great read to just escape to and enjoy.
Vivados
A good read. Some humor, no real gore, believable characters.
Brajind
I don't do much with fiction. It was good. Deaf character was OK.
IGOT
