PMTough, cynical, and clever, Nathan Heller has been called ?the perfect private eye,? the best investigator that Chicago (where ?lightning? means gunfire) has to offer. Created by New York Times bestselling novelist and Road to Perdition creator Max Allan Collins, the classic PI comes vibrantly to life in this collection of thirteen stories, all based on real cases of the 1930s and ?40s. In ?The Blonde Tigress,? Heller encounters a vicious hold-up crew with a brutal female leader, while in ?Scrap? he investigates a union shooting that has national implications. In ?The Perfect Crime? he goes Hollywood to protect the lovely Thelma Todd, with tragic results.
