Featuring: Nathan Heller
Add to Wish List
New York Times-bestselling author Max Allan Collins
seamlessly blends fact and fiction to re-create the
twentieth century’s most notorious crimes. Now, in this
spellbinding tale of suspense, detective Nathan Heller
leaves behind the glamour of Hollywood for a wild ride in
the Windy City....
Chicago, 1950—the target of America’s first-ever
congressional inquiry into organized crime. Big trouble
for anyone who knows where the bodies are buried, and Nate
Heller has buried more than a few of them himself. He has
no illusions about his civic duty—he prefers to stay alive
and in business, mixing with the likes of starlet Jayne
Mansfield and singer Frank Sinatra. But certain high-level
gangsters, including Sam Giancana and the Fischetti
brothers, aren’t so sure Heller will stay discreet.
After all, the private eye’s friend ex-cop Bill Drury is
cooperating with the feds in a big way. And soon Heller
finds himself at the center of a federal squeeze play, as
Red-baiting senator Joe McCarthy weighs in with his own
threats...and a strange hidden agenda. When Drury becomes
the target of Syndicate assassins, and a troubled showgirl
is sadistically victimized, Heller stands up against the
mob—not in court, but with his own brand of rough justice.
