A Shroud for Aquarius

Author: Max Allan Collins Narrator: Dan John Miller Release Date: December 2012

The sixties are dead...and so is Ginnie Mullens. She was many things - free spirit, flower child, entrepreneur, gambler - but first and foremost she was mystery writer Mallory's friend and confidant since childhood. So Mallory understands when Sheriff Brennan drags him out of bed in the dead of night and leads him to the last place he ever wanted to go: the scene of Ginnie's last breath. A dead woman clutching the gun that killed her may lead to an official ruling of suicide, but Mallory's not ruling out murder. Driven by a gaping hole in his heart and a fierce code of honor, he's willing to risk everything to close the book on this one. Then he'll throw the book with both hands at whoever wrote Ginnie's obituary in spilled blood. Once upon a time, Ginnie hurt Mallory deeply, and he wasn't the only one. But while he finally forgave her, the same can't be said for the trail of bitter lovers that stretches back to high school. Pounding the pavement from Port City to Iowa City to Vegas - with detours down memory lane along the way - Mallory is forced to pull back the shroud on a life he only thought he knew...and never realized he couldn't save.

Angel in Black

Author: Max Allan Collins Narrator: Dan John Miller Release Date: June 2012

Los Angeles. The City of Angels. The perfect place for a honeymoon...and the worst possible time for a murder. Vacationing private investigator Nate Heller finds himself a suspect in the LAPD's investigation of the notorious Black Dahlia murder case. Problem is the butchered starlet, Elizabeth Short, is an old Chicago flame of Heller's-and only the P.I. himself knows she was blackmailing him for abortion money. Classic noir at its finest blended to extraordinary effect with historical facts, Max Allan Collins' Angel in Black crackles with tight plotting and razor-sharp dialogue. With the help of a world-weary, alcoholic Eliot Ness, Heller links the murder to a notorious Cleveland serial killer...while doing his best to stay out of jail and salvage his already troubled new marriage. Along the way he encounters Chicago boxer Barney Ross, fellow suspect Orson Welles, and zany gangster Mickey Cohen.

It's the early 1950's. Ju McCarthy is campaigning to rid America of the Red Menace. Nate Heller is doing legwork for the senator, though the Chicago detective is disheartened by McCarthy's witch-hunting tactics. He's made friends with a young staffer, Bobby Kennedy, while trading barbs with a potential enemy, the attorney Roy Cohn, who rubs Heller the wrong way.

Blood and Thunder Audiobook

Blood and Thunder

Author: Max Allan Collins Narrator: Dan John Miller Release Date: February 2012

Presidential candidate - and force of nature - Huey Long, the "Kingfish," is in fear for his life. After Nathan Heller delivers the former Louisiana governor a bulletproof vest, the Kingfish hires the Chicago private eye to investigate death threats from political rivals. Soon Heller runs head-on into an IRS investigation seeking millions skimmed from state workers for Huey's "de-duct box"...and into the arms of the ex-governor's lovely ex-mistress. When the charismatic politician is shot down by a seemingly crazed doctor, Heller gets a new employer-the insurance agency fighting a double-indemnity claim from Long's widow. Was the Kingfish truly the victim of assassination, or accidentally killed by his own bodyguards? A classic P.I. thriller built on historical fact, Max Allan Collins' Blood and Thunder showcases Huey Long in all his gaudy glory, while delving deep into the heart of the deadliest swamps of Louisiana's mob-infested politics. "Collins's sense of place and time is unerringly acute, and he happily indulges in recreating Long's fiery stump style. Although Collins has carved out a mystery subgenre that he occupies nearly alone, he and his detective would be a tough act to follow." -Publisher's Weekly (starred review)

Bye Bye, Baby

Author: Max Allan Collins Narrator: Dan John Miller Release Date: August 2011

Marilyn Monroe, the ultimate goddess of the silver screen, is at the peak of her popularity, internationally famous, universally admired by women and desired by men. But she's also famously insecure and temperamental and is being pilloried in the press for delaying the production of Something's Got to Give. When the head of Twentieth Century Fox threatens to cancel her contract, Marilyn hires "PI to the stars" Nathan Heller to tap her phones and record conversations that might prove to be important if there's a lawsuit. Less than three months later, Monroe is dead from an overdose and, officially, a suicide. But Heller isn't buying it. He knows that in the weeks before, the star was anything but suicidal. He knows, too, about her affair with JFK, about the secret connections between the Kennedys and the Mob...and about Bobby Kennedy's blood feud with Jimmy Hoffa. In short, Heller knows too much to accept this bum rap on a beautiful, gifted woman loved by the whole world...including Nathan Heller. So he investigates, though his efforts might enrage some very famous, very powerful, very dangerous people. But they can't keep Heller from finding out the astounding truth behind Marilyn Monroe's untimely demise....

Carnal Hours

Author: Max Allan Collins Narrator: Dan John Miller Release Date: January 2012

In July 1943, Nate Heller flies to Nassau where multimillionaire Sir Harry Oakes wants dirt dug up on Count De Marigny, the playboy who has married Harry's beautiful, underage daughter, Nancy. But the investigation has barely begun when Sir Harry turns up dead in bed - burned to death in a real-life locked-room mystery - and Heller is soon working for Nancy, whose husband faces murder charges. Chicago P.I. Heller is on his most intriguing - and dangerous - mission yet in this devilishly clever thriller filled with surprising twists and sharp turns. With the world at war, the peaceful Bahamas provide an ironic, idyllic backdrop for Nazis, the mafia, and two lovely women: one a native girl, the other an aristocratic Englishwoman. Heller is aided by a certain British secret service agent ("Fleming...Ian Fleming"), and encounters along the way the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Meyer Lanksy, and Perry Mason's creator, Erle Stanley Gardner. "No one can twist you through a maze with the intensity and suspense of Max Allan Collins. A classic." -Clive Cussler, author of Raise the Titanic
