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.The characters, historical and fictional, come delightfully to life... Collins paints a web of interconnections in a tightly woven plot and posits a radical solution to a crime that still resonates in literature and movies. - Publishers Weekly (starred review) Download and start listening now!


Listener Opinions

    " Over- & unnecessary use of the f--- word. Good story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meaghan Clark | 3/30/2013

    " A good, solid, fictional book dealing with the murder of Elizabeth Short aka the Black Dahlia. Better, in my opinion, than the more well-known James Ellroy book "The Black Dahlia". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 3/9/2013

    " I liked this book, but am not a fan of the vulgar language. There are just so many times you can use the f-word before it sounds like a place holder and not part of the actual vocabulary of the character. Past that annoyance (and it really was one) the plot was quite interesting. "

    " This is my first Nat Heller book. Terrific plot, I had a hard time putting it down. Lots of references to famous people. The scenes and descriptions get pretty graphic at times. I would NOT recommend this to anyone who is squeamish. "

    " See my review of Bye, Bye, Baby, by Max Allen Collins. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ming Siu | 9/14/2012

    " This is one of the best Nathan Heller novels out there. A solid, thoroughly-researched historical mystery that kicks in right from the first page, and a multitude of competing theories leading every which way. Collins offers a fascinating new theory on the case, one which makes a lot of sense. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tara | 6/24/2012

    " While this didn't solve the Black Dahlia mystery for me, an entertaining read. As with every book on the subject, it leaves you with a very hollow feeling at the end when you think about the real victim of this horrific crime. "
