So Nude, So Dead by Ed McBain

Tags:  crime-fiction
I picked this up in a bookstore the other day because I liked the lurid, 1950s pulp style of the cover, and the opening chapter was good. I hadn’t read Ed McBain before, and I was surprised to read a first novel in which the plotting, dialog, and characters are solid throughout. The main character, Ray Stone, is an addict who finds himself framed for a murder and has to prove his innocence.
