TRANSGRESSIONS, VOLUME 3 Actually three novellas in one volume. MERELY HATE by Ed McBain, WALKING THE LINE by Walter Mosley, and WALKING AROUND MONEY by Donald E. Westlake. Three excellent stories by three great authors. The McBain is a classic 87th precinct job involving Muslim cab drivers (right out todays paper (?). Mosley features Archibald Lawless and Felix Orlean, a New York City journalism student, and Westlake who else but our old pal John Dortmunder, who gets involved with a crime no one is supposed to ever know what happened. Copyrighted in 2005, it refers to additional volumes in this series with other featured authors including Lawrence Block, Anne Perry and Jeffery Deaver. Hope I can find them.

MERELY HATE by Ed McBain: When a string of Muslim cab drivers are killed, and the evidence points to another ethnic group, the detectives of the 87th precinct must hunt down a killer before a city explodes in violence.

WALKING THE LINE by Walter Mosely: Felix Orlean is a New York City journalism student who needs a job to cover his rent. An ad in the paper leads him to Archibald Lawless, and a descent into a shadow world where no one and nothing is as it first seems.

WALKING AROUND MONEY by Donald E. Westlake: The master of the comic mystery is back with an all new tale featuring hapless crook John Dortmunder, who gets involved in a crime that supposedly no one will ever know happened. Naturally, when something is too good to be true, it usually is, and Dortmunder is going to get to the bottom of this caper before he's left holding the bag.
