lady killer

On Saturday 28 February I finished Lady Killer by Ed McBain. I like procedural detective novels, which this was, and it was quite good, though the plot wasn't great. He wrote a lot of them, and while this wouldn't put me off reading more, it didn't make me want to seek them out particularly. I realise that once you get beyond Chandler/Hammett/Stout in chronology, I'm not that keen on crime novels set in America.
