Ed McBain's 87th Precinct books are among the best police procedurals written. Period. If you want to read mystery writing at its best, anyone of the 87th Precinct books would get 5 stars plus in my view. The Mathew Hope series are another matter. "Beauty and the Beast" has a promising beginning: A beautiful French woman married to a very large, unattractive black junk dealer (the beauty and the beast) is found eviscerated and burned on a south Florida beach. The swing of evidence suggests the husband did it. Mathew Hope agrees to defend the husband although any indication of appreciation seems completely lacking by the husband who denies he did it and is adamant that he can't pay much. In the ensuing chapters, the husband cements his guilt by breaking out of jail. Undeterred, Mathew Hope believes he's innocent and goes about trying to prove it. It would be unlikely for Ed McBain to write a book that wasn't entertaining but I'm afraid this one is all too easy to figure out. If you want an easy and entertaining read, I recommend "Beauty and the Beast." If instead you'd like a challenging mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end, any of the 87th Precinct books would be far superior to "Beauty and the Beast."

85%, or more, of the book is filler and fluff. The plot is somewhat interesting but not worth the slogging. I was looking for something other than his 87Th Precinct series but this book was awful. Protagonist Lawyer's descriptions of his civil practice, sexy girl friend, and problems with his ex and custody of his Daughter, and the extensive unnecessary descriptions of people and places make this book incredibly tedious.

Lots of fun to read not cmplex but it does keep you gussing. If yo have spent any time living in south west Florida it is fun to try and figure out which actual local was the source for the details in the novel.

Ed McBain was a master story teller. I especially liked this book because I'm a lawyer, and the issues presented in the defense of the "beast" are often issues the I have to deal with. McBain gave you facts that would lead you to believe that Hope's client was guilty, and kept you guessing until the end. I was able to reach a decision on who I thought committed the crime about 2/3's of the way through the book, and I was right. Nothing was obvious. This was a very enjoyable read.

Love all Matthew Hope Great read You feel like your right in the room with him . I didn't want to stop reading
I've read a ton of McBain's 87th Precinct novels through the years but until I got my Kindle I didn't realize he had added other series. In my opinion, anything this man writes is worth reading. Some are better than others but I found all worth the time it took to read them. I'm adding Matthew Hope to my "like" list.
