Twice a winner of the Shamus Award, New York Times
best-selling author Max Allan Collins seamlessly blends fact with fiction. Meticulously researched and full of period detail, his novels bring to life a bygone era. Leslie Charteris, legendary creator of the Saint
mystery series, is a passenger on what is to be the last fatal flight of the Hindenburg. Uneasy to find the dirigible under Nazi control, Charteris becomes even more apprehensive with the disappearance of a Gestapo agent. Asked to investigate, he begins digging into the background of his fellow passengers, unearthing uncomfortable secrets along the way. Ultimately, he will be the only person with the truth behind the devastating fire. As he did in The Titanic Murders
, Max Allan Collins once again delivers an intriguing view of what might have happened. Jeff Woodman's fine narration perfectly captures Charteris' inquisitive intelligence.
