"A Tom Doherty Associates book."

"Chicago, September 1964. Beatlemania sweeps the nation, the Vietnam War looms, and the Warren Commission prepares to blame a "lone-nut" assassin for the killing of President John F. Kennedy. But as the post-Camelot era begins, a suspicious outbreak of suicides, accidental deaths, and outright murders decimates assassination witnesses. When Nathan Heller and his son are nearly run down on a city street, the private detective wonders if he himself might be a loose end. Soon a faked suicide linked to President Johnson's corrupt cronies takes Heller to Texas, where celebrity columnist Flo Kilgore implores him to explore that growing list of dead witnesses. With the blessing of Bobby Kennedy--former US attorney general, now running for Senator from New York--Heller and Flo investigate the increasing wave of violence that seems to emanate from the notorious Mac Wallace, rumored to be LBJ's personal hatchet man. Fifty years after JFK's tragic death, Collins's rigorous research raises new questions about the most controversial assassination of our time"--

Nathan Heller Series Continues


One year after the JFK assassination a rash of suspicious suicides catch the attention of Chicago P.I Nathan Heller.

When he and his son are almost run down Nathan teams up with famous columnist Flo Kilgore to investigate.

The suicides aren't what they seem and lead to LBJ's henchman Mac Wallace and New Orleans mafia kingpin, Carlos Marcello.

Bobby Kennedy gives Nathan the go ahead to investigate and how it may tie in to the failed Mongoose operation to kill Fidel Castro.

Max Allan Collins is excellent at bring real figures to life in his Nathan Heller series, one of most enjoyable. Flo Kilgore was based on famous columnist Dorothy Kilgallen.
