About this title:

Synopsis: Private detective Nathan Heller goes undercover into the dark and violent world of the Chicago outlaw gangs of the 1930s to find a farmer's-daughter-turned-gun-moll

From the Back Cover: 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.

“Crackles with low-life meanness and cynical humor...enough perverse twists, gritty period color, and sheer violent momentum to keep crime buffs, ‘true’ or otherwise, eagerly turning the pages.”—New York Times Book Review
