Ed McBain's Cop Hater: Episode One, Part Two - We Enjoy Apocrypha

Part Two ("The big bit") is here!
Finally, we get into some detail about the first book in the 87th Precinct series, Cop Hater (1956)! This episode is probably longer than we intend for most of them, but as this is Book One and we're still talking about the genesis and background for the series, well, there you go.
