||Candyland is as inventive and explosive,
as stylish and perceptive as its creator. The novel begins as
a fever-pitched search for identity, told in classic Evan Hunter
style. Alone in New York City on business, Benjamin Thorpe --
a successful Los Angeles architect and family man -- spends
his empty night on a compulsive quest for female companionship.
His dizzying descent leads to a confrontation in a midtown bordello
and a searing self-revelation ...
Emma Boyle of the Special
Victims Unit is assigned to the case of a young prostitute's
murder. As the foggy events of the night in question come
into focus, Benjamin Thorpe becomes a viable suspect. The
excruciating suspense is classic McBain -- and the combined
impact of both halves of CANDYLAND is unforgettable.
