    Cop Hater by Ed McBain

As a cop with the city's famed 87th Precinct, Steve Carella has seen it all. Or so he thinks. Because nothing can prepare him for the sight that greets him on a sweltering July night: fellow detective Mike Reardon's dead body splayed across the sidewalk, his face blown away by a .45. Days later, Reardon's partner is found dead, a .45-caliber bullet buried deep in his chest. Only a fool would call it a coincidence, and Carella's no fool.

    The Pusher by Ed McBain

A bitterly cold night offers up a body turned blue, not frozen, but swinging from a rope in a dank basement. The dead teen seems like a clear case of suicide, but Detective Steve Carella and Lieutenant Peter Byrnes find a few facts out of place, and an autopsy confirms their suspicions. The boy hadn't hung himself but OD'd on heroin before an unknown someone strung him up to hide the true cause of death. The revelation dredges up enough muck to muddy the waters of what should've been an open-and-shut case.
