This is a series that should probably be read in order, but if you don't want to hock your car to buy Dad the whole set, just a sampling will probably be enough to get him hooked. Better than a tie any day!

Looking through this list, I realized I might not have read some of the earliest books in this series. I think I started with HAIL, HAIL THE GANG'S ALL HERE in 1971. I know I've read all the subsequent books, but I'm not sure about the earlier ones.
I guess it doesn't matter where you start - they're all great books!

You're right about reading Ed McBain's books in order but I've read the ones he used to write about the 87th Precinct. The television series was good and they pretty much followed his books.
