Long before November 22, 1963, Nathan Heller, “P.I. to the Stars,” knows that a conspiracy is in the works. Several years earlier, Heller had been involved with the Kennedys, the Mob, and the CIA in the early stages of a plan to assassinate Fidel Castro. Shortly after, Heller’s Mafia contact is murdered. After being interrogated by gangsters and contacted by U.S. Attorney General Robert Kennedy, Heller realizes that he may be the one person who can prevent a devastating political assassination. Only he knows all the players; only he knows why a web of conspirators has targeted the man known to the Secret Service as “Lancer,” John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Rigorously researched, Max Allan Collins’s Target Lancer is far more truth than fiction.

Do you remember where you were when President Kennedy was killed?Even if you weren’t alive at the time, you surely know that a sniper in ahigh window was waiting for JFK to ride by on that infamous day in November.In Chicago.

 The city’s oldest, most famous strip joint was just a storefront  with
606 CLUB
emblazoned in neon over its lighted-up canopied walkway. Another, smaller 
606
neon sign crooked its summoning finger into the street, while windows promised delight by way of posters of Lili St. Cyr, Ann Corio, and Tempest Storm, none of  whom was appearing right now. The 606 opened in 1932, back when strippers were calledburlesque queens, and it hadn’t changed much in all that time.Sure, the walls got washed on occasion, the floors swept, thedishes scrubbed; but otherwise it remained a cozy, smoky,naughty retreat for businessmen, college boys, and in par ticu-lar conventioneers. The latter were the lifeblood of the joint, as the 606 was

Having unraveled the truth behind Marilyn Monroe's death in 2011's Bye Bye, Baby, Nate Heller now looks into JFK's assassination in Collins's suspenseful 14th novel featuring the detective dubbed by Life magazine the "Private Eye to the Stars." In October 1963, a press agent friend asks Nate to accompany him to a Chicago club to help deliver an envelope full of cash to "a guy named Jake." Jake turns out to be someone Nate knows-the mob-connected Jake Rubinstein, who runs strip clubs in Dallas under the name Jack Ruby. Ruby suggests that Nate has been assigned to keep tabs on him by the conspirators behind Operation Mongoose, the CIA-sponsored effort to take out Fidel Castro with the Mafia's help. Soon, rumors of an upcoming hit on the president gain substance. Collins has not only devised an original take on what may well be the most-written-about crime in history but also made Heller's role in the case plausible.
