Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Evan Hunter also writes under the pen name Ed McBain. Evan Hunter wrote the screenplays for Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds and Strangers When We Meet, and the novel The Blackboard Jungle. As Ed McBain, he has written fifty 87th Precinct novels, the blueprint series for police procedurals. His short stories take you onto the gritty and violent streets of the city and into the darkest places in the human mind. This collection of eleven stories showcases the mastery for which the San Diego Union-Tribune dubs him the unquestioned king.

Good story telling. But all the short stories are "dated" and from another time. These are not the best from this author. If you ask which author is more pertinent between Hunter and Mc Bain, I would believe the overwhelming response would be the latter, even if they're the one and the same.
