(as Ed McBain)
|Media type||Print (Paperback)|
Brief plot summary
Would you kill someone for love? Someone did. A man and a woman die from shotgun wounds. Kling's girlfriend says she would, and Carella won't answer.
The New York Times Book Review wrote that Shotgun was similar to McBain's previous book, Fuzz, in its more lighthearted approach to the police procedural. However, the reviewer, Allen Hubin, found the work inferior, with a fragmented plot and the humor not as funny. Nevertheless, Hubin said it compared favorable with other recent "fun novels".
