The Mugger by Ed McBain


"A mugger who specializes in female victims is providing a lot of work for Detective Hal Willis of the 87th Precinct. After each of his crimes, the mugger bows low and announces, "Clifford thanks you, madam," before running off. At the same time, Patrolman Bert Kling is asked to speak to a troubled teenaged girl. Soon the girl is dead, apparently the latest victim of the mugger."

My thoughts:

This was a good police procedural - the second in the 87th Precinct Series. I liked the characters and the plot.
