On October 30, 1938, rising radio star Orson Welles boondoggles the American public into believing that Martians have attacked Earth. With his clever adaptation of The War of the Worlds, the great showman proves he can get away with anything - maybe even murder.

Minutes before the fictitious invasion goes live on the air, a dead body is found in the studio and the polarizing Welles is the obvious suspect. Convinced that the star has been framed, Walter Gibson - creator of pulp superhero the Shadow - has exactly one hour, the length of the radio show, to solve the murder. But in show business, appearances are deceptive, and the facts of this case are not what they seem.

The sixth in the series of Max Allan Collins's disaster thrillers, The War of the Worlds Murder offers up historical high jinks of Welles-ian proportions.

    " Probably the least gripping of all of Collins' historical murder series. Try The Titanic Murders or The Hindenburg Murders for a better thought-out intertwining of history and fiction. "

    " I am a great fan of the prolific Mr. Collins. What makes this novel so entertaining is the cast of well known characters, the great "War of the Worlds" broadcast background and the historical background about Broadway and New York that Collins provides. Very entertaining read. "

    " Cop-out ending, but reading the other parts that took place during the radio show was fun. "

    " An enjoyable book, even more so if you are a fan of Orson Welles, The Shadow, and The War of the Worlds. I would have given it four stars if (and I am not giving away any spoilers) the plot was not such a let down. I have to admit that I ended the book feeling disappointed. "
