A number of the reviews are posted directly on Patti's page (I don't make that pun too often), along with Marilyn Stasio's Hunter obituary which attempts to give Hunter/McBain credit for inventing the US police procedural, with an ensemble cast of characters...which will come as news to those who remember Lawrence Treat was doing exactly that a decade and a half before Hunter began publishing his 87th Precinct stories and novels...
