Max Allan Collins wrote the graphic novel that inspired the Oscar-winning film Road to Perdition. Among his popular crime and detective novels are the hard-boiled adventures of killer-for-hire Quarry and heist-artist Nolan, both series available in uniform editions from Perfect Crime Books.From Publishers Weekly:
Collins (The Million-Dollar Wound, the Mallory series) may not be in Elmore Leonard's class but he's a contender. Nolan, a retired thief, is 50-ish and legit now, owner of a successful shopping-mall restaurant in the Quad Cities on the Iowa-Illinois border. He even has a young, beautiful live-in assistant whom he'll probably marry soon. (For the taciturn Nolan, Sherry's "in the top two"; money will always be number one for him.) Nolan's new identity is threatened when Coleman Comfort, ex-crime confederate, reenters his life. Bearing a crazy grudge, Comfort is also after a big score: he kidnaps Sherry and forces Nolan to mastermind the heist of the whole shopping mall. Nolan suspects what we know from the start: that Comfort is a ruthless psychotic who does not leave living witnesses. As Nolan plans the heist he must also try and find Sherry. The end is bloody, if a bit pat, but readers will love the snappy pace, wonderful color (a shopping mall at its Christmas apogee) and rich cast of characters. Cole Comfort, handsome, paternal good ole boy with a disarming smle, is a terrific villain.
