Ed McBain, a recipient of the Mystery Writers of America's coveted Grand Master Award, was also the first American to receive the Diamond Dagger, the British Crime Writers Association's highest award. Alice in Jeopardy is a standalone and while it’s a typical McBain novel-which is a good thing-it just feel. .well, off. In a strange way. Although the story takes place present day, 2005, it truly feels like it was written back in the 50’s, 60’s or early 870’s.

ALICE IN JEOPARDY is a truly gripping book, absolutely jam-packed with twists and turns, culminating in a totally unexpected ending. Ed McBain (1926-2005) was born Salvatore Lombino in New York. He changed his name to Evan Hunter and under that name is known as the author of THE BLACKBOARD JUNGLE and as the writer of the screenplay for Alfred Hitchcock's THE BIRDS. The 87th Precinct series numbers over fifty novels. McBain was a Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America and was one of three American writers to be awarded the CWA Diamond Dagger for lifetime achievement.

Ed McBain is a pen name for Evan Hunter who was born in 1926 in East Harlem, New York on October 15, 1926. Hunter was born with the name Salvatore Albert Lombino, and he legally adopted the name Evan Hunter in 1952. During World War II, Hunter joined the Navy and served aboard a destroyer in the Pacific. He graduated from Hunter College, were he majored in English and psychology, with minors in dramatics and education. He was a prolific writer who also wrote under the names of Ed McBain, Curt Cannon, Hunt Collins, Ezra Hannon, and Richard Marsten.

Alice In Jeopardy book. I have your children. My 64th book by Ed McBain, my Most Read Author (just saying, after Goodread deleted the function with no notice) A great convoluted kidnapping plot set in Florida with multiple players milling around Alice as her kids are snatched. Aug 18, 2018 James rated it it was ok.

This book was to be the start of a new series of mysteries by Ed McBain - but, alas, he passed away in 2005 after only completing this volume. This book studies the crime from the perspective of the victim, Alice Glendenning, who must take charge of her life when her two children are kidnapped and held for ransom.

  • Uafrmaine
Another great novel from the master.
  • Shalizel
In sharp contrat with other McBain novels located in Florida, this Alice is not in Wonderland, nor are the perpretators dark and bloody, just regular loosers. The plot is McBain in his best shape.
  • Cerar
As usual, Ed McBain puts out a great story.......I'm always entertained to the end, then wishing for more.....his stories stand the test of time too....
  • Yainai
This truly was the most disappointing Ed McBain book I have read! By the time I had read 150 pages I decided I'd had enough...the plot is too easy to figure out, no suspense, the cops are a farce and put a bad name on Florida law enforcemente, etc., etc. I sure hope McBain goes back to the 87th Precinct and "finds himself" once again.
  • Tall
Some of the reviews are negative. I'm just a somebody in a small town who really enjoyed this book. Many twists and turns that make it a page turner. A real delight.
  • Nkeiy
one of Ed McBain's best

Like his writing style and his sly sense of humor
Ed McBain is widely regarded as one of the best mystery writers of the last half century. His 87th Precinct novels are classics. As a kid, he was one of the first authors I ever read. He truly is the Michael Connelly of his generation.

He started writing in the 50’s and continued writing until his death in 2005. Alice in Jeopardy was the next to last novel he wrote.
Alice in Jeopardy is a standalone and while it’s a typical McBain novel—which is a good thing—it just feels….well, off. In a strange way.

Although the story takes place present day, 2005, it truly feels like it was written back in the 50’s, 60’s or early 870’s. Several times I checked the copyright date to make sure it was not a 40 year-old novel.

Although it takes place in 2005, it truly has the feel of a 1966 novel. Not really a big deal, but just makes the story feel weird.
Two of the main characters are sisters named Alice and Carol. They are both in their 30’s. Now, how many of you know people in their 30’s named Alice and Carol. Those are ‘older’ sounding names.

Some of the police procedures also seem outdated and were not commonly used and practiced in 2005. The fact cops can just go in to a public restroom and dust for prints or search someone’s home without a warrant would never happen nowadays or in 2005. 1962, maybe? But not present day.

In another scene 2 detectives are putting a trace, a tap, on a phone line. Granted, by 2005, many people used cells and not landlines but still, what made it seem ‘old’ is that it took them all night to get the trace. The protagonist went to sleep with the detectives installing the trace and woke up the next morning to find they were still working on it.

In one scene, Alice and Carol need to look up the location of a city. Even in 2005, people would sign online and use Google Maps. Instead, Alice rummaged through her closet, pulled out a map and spread it across the kitchen table.

In another scene, two others need to find the location of a city and decide to buy a map in a gas station and then calculate the distance based on those grids of one inch equals fifty miles.

Lastly, toward the end of the novel, a detective is talking about having gotten a phone number through the phone company. She refers to the phone company as Ma Bell. Now, when was the last time you heard anyone refer to the phone company as Ma Bell. I’m sure if you’re under 35 you don’t even know what Ma Bell is.

If you read this book, just pretend it takes place not in 2005 but in 1965.
