Publisher's Summary

March 1932. After the recently incarcerated Al Capone offers to negotiate the return of the kidnapped son of Charles Lindbergh, Nathan Heller of the Chicago P.D. is sent to Hopewell, New Jersey, as a police liaison. As a part of Lindbergh’s inner circle, Heller investigates crooks, cranks, socialites, and psychics in a frustrating, fruitless attempt to solve the case.

Max Allan Collins makes the crime that captivated a nation the focal point of yet another fascinating and thoroughly spellbinding foray into his world of historical crime fiction. Four years later, in 1936, Heller - now a private detective, and considered an expert and insider on the Lindbergh case - is hired by the governor of New Jersey in an eleventh-hour quest to determine the guilt or innocence of Bruno Hauptmann, who sits on death row convicted of the murder and kidnapping of the Lindbergh child.

    "Superb"

    This may be the best book in a great, great series. Mr. Collins does an incredible job of putting the reader into historical mysteries and events via detective Nate Heller, truly one of fiction???s best characters. One of the best and boldest things Mr Collins does in this series is have Nate Heller ???solve??? the unsolved crimes. In Stolen Away, he is not afraid to provide (and support) a great solution to the infamous Lindbergh kidnapping. While the reader may be familiar with the cases Heller solves, Mr Collins presents them in a hard-boiled, exciting and occasionally humorous fashion. Since the cases are historically unsolved or partly solved, part of the excitement for the reader (and what makes these books hard to put down once started) is anticipation of the ???solution??? to be provided. The historical figures, even the minor ones, are depicted in fully three dimensions and very believably. Dan John Miller does a superb job with his voice characterizations of real and fictional characters and best of all he ???gets??? Nate Heller. Highly recommended.

    "Loved it ---- Excellent History Lesson"

    Loved it ---- Excellent History Lesson

    I am new to this series and have listened to this and the pre-Dallas JFK Chicago assassination plot "Target Lancer".

    Great history lessons. I sit there and listen while punching in names and events into my Google search for more detail. I plan on listening to the whole series.
