Book Description
 

CHICAGO CONFIDENTIAL by Max Allan Collins - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Max Allan Collins.

Chicago, 1950 - the target of America's first-ever congressional inquiry into organized crime. Big trouble for anyone who knows where the bodies are buried, and Nate Heller has buried more than a few of them himself. He has no illusions about his civic duty - he prefers to stay alive and in business, mixing with the likes of starlet Jayne Mansfield and singer Frank Sinatra. But certain high-level gangsters, including Sam Giancana and the Fischetti brothers, aren't so sure Heller will stay discreet." After all, the private eye's partner, ex-cop Bill Drury, is cooperating with the feds in a big way. And soon Heller finds himself at the center of a federal squeeze play as Red-baiting senator Joe McCarthy weighs in with his own threats...and a strange hidden agenda. When Drury becomes a target of Syndicate assassins, and a troubled showgirl is sadistically victimized, Heller stands up against the mob - not in court, but with his own brand of rough justice.
