Mystery Historical

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.
