I felt quite sad
reading Ed McBain's latest (last? but internet rumor says he wrote one in advance that would finish off the series after his death) Fiddlers : A Novel of the 87th Precinct. It feels curiously inconclusive, knowing that Evan Hunter is dead now and will not write any more novels. In the last few, the best drama for me has been in following Fat Ollie's romance, the latest development of which provides the cliffhanger ending here.
