So funny that every Wednesday night millions of people lowered their lights and raised his TV rating to unparalleled heights -- until the night he lost his sense of humor, and his life. Everyone watching thought it was a heart attack. Everyone except Detectives Carella and Meyer, who had a hunch that even forty million witnesses could be wrong...and brilliantly conceived a plan to prove it.Meanwhile, at the 87th Precinct, Detective Kling had his hands full with a black-and-blue blonde. Shed been attacked and sadistically beaten as a warning to stay away from the police, but evidently had been in no mood to listen. Detective Kling took a very close look at the facts, a very long look at the blonde, and accepted the case -- going far beyond the line of duty to solve it.Eighty Million Eyes is one of the most icily explicit expositions of police procedure any reader will ever encounter -- a double-edged thriller dealing with two cases whose histories run concurrently. There is plenty of fascinating lab work, tough action and typical McBain irony before the 87th ties up the loose ends of this unique, twin-sized surprise shocker. Its an absolute spellbinder. -- Book Jacket of the Book Club Edition.
