    MOBI ☆ DOC Chicago Lightning The Collected Nathan Heller Short Stories Kindle Edition æ MAX ALLAN COLLINS Chicago Lightning The Collected Nathan Heller Short StoriesA delightful mix of reasonable length complete stories which are based on real life crimes from that eraThe style is easy to read not needlessly overdescriptive the characters are all fleshed out nicely and the stories flowed well and ended smoothly not in a rush like some short stories I have read Some of the descriptive prose did make me giggle and I wish I had bookmarked some examples There were obviously words and phrases that I didnt completely follow being English and not familiar with 1930's US slang but these were easily guessed given the context and didnt detract from my overall enjoyment or understanding of the storiesAs I do not normally read this g

    MOBI ☆ DOC Chicago Lightning The Collected Nathan Heller Short Stories Kindle Edition æ MAX ALLAN COLLINS Chicago Lightning The Collected Nathan Heller Short StoriesThis was a Kindle book that I picked up while it was on sale as an introduction to the Nathan Heller PI character I only knew a little bit about the author that he was the guy who wrote Road to Perdition a Tom HanksPaul Newman movie that I've always wanted to see but haven't gotten around to yetI didn't think I'd be making it all the way through this one as it oozes dime store pulp

    MOBI ☆ DOC Chicago Lightning The Collected Nathan Heller Short Stories Kindle Edition æ MAX ALLAN COLLINS Chicago Lightning The Collected Nathan Heller Short StoriesI enjoyed these short classic style detective stories but not as much as the original Nate Heller novel True Detective Like the novel the stories are set in the 1930s and 1940s mostly in Chicago A few are set California among the movie stars and mob figures of the day The stories are sexier that the classic private eye stories of the 30s but maintain the uick direct style of detective magazine pieces The names and locations are interesting and the the fact that each story has a basis in fact makes the reading experience fun and diverting The longest story in the group would take no longer than 20 minutes to finish Try the novel True Detective first for a complete background for the detective Nate Heller his brief stint with the Chicago police and his involvement with Al Capone Frank Nitti and the assa

    MOBI ☆ DOC Chicago Lightning The Collected Nathan Heller Short Stories Kindle Edition æ MAX ALLAN COLLINS Chicago Lightning The Collected Nathan Heller Short StoriesAs the title says this is a collection of short stories featuring Nate Heller a Chicago private detective I haven't read any of the author's full length novels featuring this character but I really enjoyed these stories He lays out the stories not in the order written but in the timeframe of the lead character's life from the early 1930s to the late 1940s So we see a young Nate Heller near the beginning of his Chicago PI career to an older Nate Heller residing at least part time in LAThe stories all involve real crimes into which the author has inserted his character Following each story he cites the research done for each story and the actual outcome of the case While the title also refers to gunfire lightning in Chicago the stories take place in Chicago Cleveland and Los Angeles Two of the stories feature Eliot Ness in a supporting role real cases Ness was involved in As a fan of old movies from the 40's and 50's I particularly

    MOBI ☆ DOC Chicago Lightning The Collected Nathan Heller Short Stories Kindle Edition æ MAX ALLAN COLLINS Chicago Lightning The Collected Nathan Heller Short StoriesI remember reading in a magazine in the early 80s that private eye books and movies were dead never to be resurrected Supposedly psychological crime fiction was the wave of the future I am so glad that writer got it wrong The stories in this collection are all hard boiled private eye fiction reminiscent of Dashiell Hammett Ross McDonald and Raymond Chandler While I noticed undertones of each of these authors these stories are all uniue and have their own uniue voice Each story combines the facts of a murder case from the 1930s and 1940s with the authors speculation on how the crime was committed and who did it The detective he has created is honest enough that we want to cheer for him but isn’t gullible or as clean as a Boy Scout He is tough but he can feel pain and even fear He l

    MOBI ☆ DOC Chicago Lightning The Collected Nathan Heller Short Stories Kindle Edition æ MAX ALLAN COLLINS Chicago Lightning The Collected Nathan Heller Short StoriesI enjoyed this a nice blend of historical fiction If I get a chance I'm gonna check out some Nate Heller detective novels I would have given this 5 stars but the book had a couple of author's notes out of order and Halsted was misspelled once The one thing my Chicago area based book club found unusual was that despite the Chicago connections in this collection we couldn't find this book in any metro Chicago library
