    I liked his book but I do agree that it does not survive the passage of time Mr Delaney s wife does not work Hard for many to relate to that in this day and age I also think that the author was fixated on sandwiches I did find I was motivated to try a couple of the sandwiches and did not have the same dietary likes but again by the end of the story I was dying for a good sandwich from an authentic New York Deli not the pretend delis we have in Phoenix.

    This is the 2nd book I ve read not the same author that dragged endlessly If I can t give a book at least 3 stars, I don t review The storyline was good, the characters I enjoyed, but the book could have easily been cut by 100 pages and still made sense For this reason, I rate it 3 stars.

    Captain Edward X Delaney, now retired NYPD Chief of Detectives, is asked by the current Chief to investigate a high profile murder of a well loved psychiatrist That serves Delaney s purpose as well, which is to keep his mind engaged in such thought requiring endeavors.For the uninitiated, this series really puts the procedural in police procedural Capt Delaney is all about pounding the pavement, knocking on doors, double checking alibis, interviewing and re interviewing anybody and everybody who might have even the smallest tidbit of information to help him fill in the pieces of the puzzle But due to the volume of work that all entails, in this novel, he knows he can t do it alone And because he is retired and no longer carries a badge, he asks for assistance in the form of two active cops detectives that have worked with him before The trail leads to a narrowed down list of six patients of the murdered psychiatrist and so six cops get assigned to the task force, each one to concentrate specifically on a single patient That ends up being a lot of characters to juggle in one novel but Sanders pulls it off admirably It helps that Delaney, at several points in the book, writes summaries of the facts so far and the remaining open questions he has, which of course leads to further action for his task force.I ve never been a cop but I suspect many major crimes are solved in the same way these books suggest Rarely is it the genius of the sleuth that deduces the method of the crime and the identity of the criminal s by out thinking the criminal s attempts to get away with the perfect crime Rather it is the relentless pursuit of every detail that yields results And often, even then, there are no prosecutable results Big city police departments never seem to have enough resources to spend so much time investigating a single murder so the author s choice to have his sleuth retired and able to spend all his time on the case works well.The ending of this novel was bittersweet, not just because of the nature of the resolution of the case but for the realization that this is the final novel in the series I shall not only miss Capt Delaney s workmanlike approach to crime solving but also his penchant for creating mouthwatering sandwiches for himself and for his philosophical discussions with his wife on the nature of human behavior Captain Edward X Delaney remains one of my favorite literary characters.

    Since I don t normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here s the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won t be reading any from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won t go out of my way to read , But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I d pick it up.4 stars I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be on the look out to pick up from the series author.5 stars I loved this book It had earned a permanent home in my collection and I ll be picking up the rest of the series and other books from the author ASAP.

    Like many, I read this many years ago and remember thoroughly enjoying it It was better than his others in the series imo and kept my attention until the end trying to figure out the killer I don t think I got it right until close to the end, so that made it even a better read I d have to read it again, to see if my viewpoint is altered by progression of time, but I d give it at least 3 stars even with a dated feel to it.

    Nos encontramos con una excelente novela policial, muy bien escrita, y con una notable caracterizaci n de los personajes.Cuando un afamado y adinerado psiquiatra es asesinado, ante la repercusi n que tiene el caso, la polic a recurre al antiguo jefe de detectives Edward Delaney ya retirado para que se haga cargo de la investigaci n.Con un equipo de detectives especialmente designado, y en medio de presiones, e internas polic acas, lleva a cabo una minuciosa investigaci n sobre los hechos, y, sobre todo, sobre las personalidades de cada uno de los involucrados y posibles autores del crimen, atendiendo a que muchos de ellos eran pacientes de la v ctima.De esta forma, vamos recorriendo las p ginas de este relato atrapante, escrito con magistral prosa, donde, a la sucesi n de hechos y a la rutina del procedimiento policial, le agregamos una profunda descripci n de los personajes, tanto los investigadores como los investigados , a los que vemos interactuar unos con otros, tanto en los interrogatorios como en sus relaciones personales y familiares y, aunque se cae en ciertos estereotipos, los protagonistas se nos hacen cre bles, y muchos de ellos, queribles.Recomiendo, entonces, la lectura de esta muy buena novela.

    The Best Bubble Gum Ever If you re tired of streaming or cleaning for the moment and need to pass some time, you won t go wrong with the four Deadly Sins series from Lawrence Sanders I zip through all of them every other year, in sequence They re great reads, and I ve always pictured George C Scott as Edward X Delaney Frank Sinatra in the movie version of the First in pretty insipid, but apparently he owned the rights.The Fourth is the murder is Dr Simon Ellerbee, you get the usual palette of suspects, and retired Chief of Detectives gets his crew and does his stuff If Hemingway wrote crime suspense set in NYC, it d be like this I love short descriptive sentences Not sure I recall seeing ears like slabs of veal in this one If you love New York, Mr Sanders captures its essence like a great musical conductor The Sins series is the best, followed by the Commandments The Arch McNally stuff which followed that is okay, even though they kept the series going after Mr Sanders died in 1998 I just find that disrespectful I only regret there wasn t a Fifth Deadly Sin.

    If you think you know who did it when you are in the middle of the book, well you re wrong But once you reach the last pages, you will think that you were so stupid to know who killed the doctor It was so obvious, yet it never occurred to me Everyone should read at least a book by Lawrence Sanders in their life The guy s writing is like a melody to my eyes
