A Moment of Silence, Then Resume Questioning the Dirtbag

Categories: Obituary

Lovers of cop dramas might pause to recognize the passing of Evan Hunter, better known as Ed McBain, writer of a zillion crime novels. McBain's 87th Precinct series of books basically invented the police station as dramatic set, and paved the way for Homicide, Law and Order, NYPD Blue, Hill Street Blues--you name it. His writing was clean, sparse, and extremely gritty, especially for the days before Dennis Franz could say "asshole" on TV.
