1934 Chicago dazzles with fast action and calculating, cold-blooded meanness as private detective Nate Heller combs Chicago's North Side looking for John Dillinger. But things take a turn for the strange when self-aggrandizing G-Man Melvin Purvis shoots down a Dillinger double in front of the Biograph Theater. Full of muscle and oozing Chicago's tough-guy persona to the hilt, Max Allan Collins Nate Heller is the ultimate private investigator - in the ultimate P.I. town. Heller's undercover search for a farmer's-daughter-turned-gun-moll has him on the dusty Depression backroads of middle America, in the company of Ma Barker and her boys, Baby Face Nelson, Alvin Karpis, and a very-much-still-alive Dillinger - whose outlandish plan to kidnap J. Edgar Hoover in downtown Chicago is one Heller tries to foil. Including appearances by fan dancer Sally Rand, boxer Barney Ross, and Heller's godfather, Frank Nitti, True Crime is a relentless classic.

    " The second book of Max Collins' 'True Detective' series keeps true to form with hard-boiled private eye Nathan Heller mixing it up with a colorful cast a real-life Chicago crime figures. If you like the genre it is a must read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bcoghill Coghill | 3/25/2013

    " Too hard to read several mysteries at the same time. I shall have to put this one aside. Besides, I am getting bored with the whole faux history thing that Max prefers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon Holford | 1/15/2013

    " Third of his books that I've read - not in order of having been written tho. This is Chicago again, with some of the same characters, good and bad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 L.T. Fawkes | 2/12/2011

    " 1934 Chicago. Gangsters, molls, corrupt politicians, movie starlets, crooked cops, J. Edgar Hoover, and a 26-year-pld PI named Nate Heller is right in the middle of it all. This is a great read from start to finish. $7.99 on Kindle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stan Golanka | 9/18/2010

    " Pretty good--lots of fun stuff and snappy dialog mixed with historical events. A bit long though; some stretches were a bit tedious. "

    " So far a top notch follow up to True Detective. Hard boiled as they come. Smart, sexy, violent, with the sights and sounds of 1930s Chicago almost as vivid as being there. "

    " #2 in the Frank Nitti Trilogy.

    Heller gets in deep water with mobsters, what else is new? Great fun for noir fans and history buffs. I love these books!
