Ed McBain created a parallel universe to NYC in his novels.

I spent one winter ADDICTED to Ed McBain. I think I read 10 novels in a row. Of course, that barely made a dent! I read a lot of the NYC precinct novels and also a few of the Florida novels. After gorging myself, I haven't read any, since, but I do have ICE on my bookshelf since my brother told me he and his friends loved that one way back in the 70s or early 80s. Eventually I'll get around to it!
