Lieutenant Columbo is my all-time favorite TV character, and I have now read all six of the Columbo mysteries by the late William Harrington. I'm sorry there won't be more. The books aren't perfect but they provide wonderful entertainment for Columbo fans. In this book a former FBI agent who greatly admired J. Edgar Hoover is outraged to learn that a writer is planning a biography of Hoover which reveals previously unknown and very scandalous information. To prevent the publication of the book, the agent plants explosives to kill the author and destroy her files. As in all Columbo stories, we watch the perpetrator plan and carry out his crime so there is never any question about who is guilty. Usually Columbo also knows who did it--he just has to get the proof. In this book, however, he doesn't know, and he solves the crime in a much more conventional way. We don't have his customary cat-and-mouse game with the criminal and I missed it. But I still found The Hoover Files a very enjoyable book and I thought it was true to the character of Lieutenant Columbo.

I very like to watch films about Lt. Columbo. Book condition is very good. Ovner was very accurate with this book.
My favorite so far, and it was perhaps the trickiest Columbo has ever had to get, and the first time I’ve seen it where he didn’t have a bead on the killer right from the beginning. Of course since the killer really had very little connection to Betsy, and with a bomb to destroy any evidence you can’t really blame him. Yet, even as he struggles with the main case he manages to solve several others along the way. This book didn’t really feel like the other ones, and I think in part because it was dealing with the memory of a real person, J. Edgar Hoover, but I did like how it tied in with past cases. Like I’ve said before, you have to read these in order. A lot of old detective novels like these tend to be set up where you can read them in whatever order you want, and I fell for that mistake, but you do need to read them in order to get the full understanding of the story out of it. Still you get the wonderful Columbo we all know and love, and the view of how much other respect and look up to him. These books improve on the show, and that’s a rarity that makes this series definitely worth checking out.
