The city can be a strange place, full of odd sights. Sometimes chilling sights. But nothing could prepare the detectives of the 87th Precinct for the sight of a murdered young woman, a member of a local college track team, hanging from a lamppost. Nor could they be ready for the news that the same night, another woman is raped for the third time—by the same man. Two cases, two perpetrators, one chilling evening. Can the detectives of the 87th, with help from Fat Ollie Weeks and Rape Squad Decoy Eileen Burke, put them behind bars for good? The team doesn’t have much time, because it only takes a moment for lightning to strike again.One of Ed McBain’s grittiest installments of his famed 87th Precinct series, Lightning is a masterpiece of suspense, brooding intensity, and ingenious plotting that elevates crime fiction to its highest possible plane.

In this installment of the 87th Precinct series, the precinct's male detectives spend their days and nights hunting someone who is killing young women and then hanging their bodies from lampposts around the city. They are assisted in their investigation by Fat Ollie Weeks of the 83rd Precinct and, as always, this is something of a mixed blessing.

Meanwhile, Eileen Burke of the Rape Squad is undercover, attempting to catch a particularly sadistic rapist who continues to attack the same few women over and over again. Burke is acting as a stand-in for one of the victims, hoping that she will be able to decoy the rapist into attacking her and that this will give her the opportunity to arrest him.

As always, the story is well-written; the police procedures are interesting and the by-play among the detectives is entertaining. But there's a certain creepiness factor involved with both storylines that kept me from enjoying the book as much as I otherwise would have. I'm not normally overly sensitive to this sort of thing, but in this case McBain is so good at creating truly repulsive situations that I found myself wanting to cover my eyes at some points. Thus three stars for me rather than four.

Though I have been a fan of this series for some time occasionally one really stands out from the rest. This is one of those. This has two separate crime waves occurring at the same time. Therefore nearly all of the regular characters make an appearance. Including Fat Ollie Weeks. This book also touches on some very delicate topics and therefore may not be for everyone. They are hangings, rape, and abortion. Keep in mind Ed McBain never shrank from writing in the manner of the time. Brilliant work as always. I consider Ed McBain a master of the craft

While this is not one of my favorite books by Ed.McBain, it is a good book. Characters were well developed, story line well written. Without giving away a spoiler to this title, one of the main characters receives a letter on the last page of the book, which left me wanting to know what happens in the next book, Eight Black Horses.

When I read a Ed McBain book, I know what to expect, most of the time. This one followed most of his books in that he had more than one plot line. One dealt with a serial rapist and was a little too cliche and predictable for my liking, but the one involving the murderer of young runners was good. This was more like the earlier books where McBain gives the reader insight into the lives of the policemen of the 87th precinct. I always love reading about Teddy, Carella's wife. She is strong willed and stands up for herself. I didn't care for the interaction between policeman Kling and policewoman Eileen. Other than that, I think this book, which lies somewhere around the middle of the 87th precinct books, is more like the first books. That is saying, I liked it much better than the latter books.

I've read quite a few of Ed McBain's series regarding the 87th. Precinct. They're always a fast read and entertaining. There's enough about the detectives so that you learn something about the main characters, and there are usually a couple of story lines to keep you interested. I always try to keep one available in case I want to read something simple and entertaining.

I've read several of the 87th Precinct books. If this had been the first one it would've my last. Way too graphic and too much sex. And how that awful detective Ollie Weeks hasn't been killed by someone he's insulted boggles my mind. If anyone deserves to be blown away, he does.

The 87th Precinct series are classics. If you`ve never read any and are a fan of detective type mysteries than you will love this book.
McBain is good
