6/22/1958 Steve Carella becomes a daddy
June 22, 1958. On the day of his sister's wedding 87th Precinct detective Steve Carella becomes the father of twins. Oh, and tries to prevent his new brother-in-law from getting murdered. That's the plot of Ed McBain's Til Death. Literary Review called it “zestful, inventive, and utterly compulsive.”
