Description

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)

    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.
