As usual, I read a book later in the series, I believe #7, first. I liked it so much I started at the beginning with Detective First Grade, and was immediately struck by how much Mahoney's writing (not to mention editing) had improved by book #7. Then I tried to find Edge of the City, the second book, which my library does not have but they are looking for in other libraries to give me as an interlibrary loan. So far, no dice, so I read this one, Hyde, third in the series. Problems with it: our ...more

This is my first single star rating of any book I've posted on GR, but I feel it is warranted. As a procedural written by a former NYPD detective the plot is marginal at best, however the author fails miserably in two main areas. First in his over-worded prose which contributed nothing to the storyline, and then in the books illogical shifting of location in its ending. Add to that, in the supposed climax of the story, the author seemingly describes his detective character McKenna's ability to ...more

This book dragged endlessly for me. Pages and pages of no plot movement. Reiterating the same thing over and over. Characters seemed to come and go in the story needlessly. First the protagonist was spending time with a female detective, Maureen, then she dropped out of sight as if she had never been there. McKenna's relationship with his wife really made me dislike this book. She is super shallow, a SAHM, interested in nothing but how she looks, fitting in to dresses, going out, looking "good" ...more

I was born in Manhattan on September 21, 1947, five minutes after Stephen King was born someplace in Maine. (I don't know what that means, but I'm hoping it means something.) I grew up in Manhattan and Queens and soon found myself to be the eldest of five children. I graduated from high school at age 16, a bad thing because I was too young to get a driver's license in New York and too stupid to r ...more
