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...
