  • The Ink-Stained Wretch: No more 87th Precinct
    procedural and it s impossible to imagine Hill Street Blues or NYPD Blue without Steve Carella and Meyer Meyer and the 87th Precinct guys to lead the way I had the honor of translating one of the later McBain books called Eight Black Horses into German back when I lived in Berlin and in the weeks I spent tearing the book apart to find the right way to help German
