I was not a reporter, star or otherwise

1. The two pieces of her lay porcelain-white in the ankle-high grass and weeds of a vacant lot on South Norton Avenue, like the upper and lower sections of a discarded marionette. I was not a reporter, star or otherwise. I was, and for that matter am, Nathan Heller, at that time president of the A-1 Detective Agency of Chicago, which is to say a private detective. And since a good deal of my business, over the years, had been divorce work, yes, I knew how to use a friggin’ Speed Graphic. But I didn’t feel like shooting grim pinup photos of a nude, dead, once-beautiful woman, and declined, graciously.

Los Angeles. The City of Angels. The perfect place for a honeymoon…and the worst possible time for a murder. Vacationing private investigator Nate Heller finds himself a suspect in the LAPD’s investigation of the notorious Black Dahlia murder case. Problem is the butchered starlet, Elizabeth Short, is an old Chicago flame of Heller’s ― and only the P.I. himself knows she was blackmailing him for abortion money. Classic noir at its finest blended to extraordinary effect with historical facts, Max Allan Collins’ Angel in Black crackles with tight plotting and razor-sharp dialogue. With the help of a world-weary, alcoholic Eliot Ness, Heller links the murder to a notorious Cleveland serial killer...while doing his best to stay out of jail and salvage his already troubled new marriage. Along the way he encounters Chicago boxer Barney Ross, fellow suspect Orson Welles, and zany gangster Mickey Cohen. “The characters, historical and fictional, come delightfully to life... Collins paints a web of interconnections in a tightly woven plot and posits a radical solution to a crime that still resonates in literature and movies.” - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

All Nathan Heller wants to do is get some publicity for the new Los Angeles branch of his A-1 Detective Agency and then get on with his honeymoon. Instead the reporter he is with stumbles over a body. This is not any murder case. The woman's body has been cut in half and carefully arranged. Thus begins the most disturbing Nathan Heller novel to date. The body that they have discovered is none other than the Black Dahlia. This is one of the most sensational murders in the history of Los Angeles. Before it is all over they will encounter the heavily corrupted police force, mobsters, thieves, and the most sadistic killer that Heller has ever had to face. All the while he is helping to solve the case he keeps one important piece of information to himself: he knew the victim. Along the way Heller rubs shoulders with old friends and makes some new enemies.

After the last two rather disappointing novels it feels like the old Heller is back. The story doesn't feel stretched and belabored like the previous two. The hardest part of this book is the discussion of the actual slaying. The Black Dahlia case was a horrendous murder. Hearing details about the sadistic killing is can be just a little unsettling. It's a great book and an excellent chapter in the Nathan Heller saga.

this is one of the bests presentations of the black dahlia that i have read,it put her into a more realistic and humunistic context. She appeared as a possible victim of incest and rape at an early age with a very low self image that she attempted to cover up by dressing expensively,wearing expensive perfumes but gravitated to men of very low moral character[lowlifes] and would not hesitate to resort to extortion if she could get away with it. The main Character Detective Nate Heller had had an encounter with her Romantically and when he saw her after she was murdered made it his dedication to find the killer and exacted his own justice on him. There was implication that the Cleveland Torso Killer may have had some role in her death. Elliot Ness-untouchable aided Detective Nate Heller in tracking down the torso Killer who was in Los Angeles under disguise. It was implied within the story that the black dahlia may have been masochistic.

This is the darkest of many Nate Heller novels and the first ai read in which he is married. The Black Dahlia case continues to baffle but Collins and his collaborator provide a satisfying theory. This is a great read with real LA characters and architecture. I recommend it over other abate Heller tomes.

Max Allan Collins' fictional dick Nate Heller is probably my all time favorite fictional character. I've read each book of the series multiple times. So it's a treat to have the audio, read by Dan Jon Miller. Miller's ear for dialect, for giving a distinct voice to even the most minor characters, sheds a new light on a book I've already read a few times.
Heller's tale of the Black Dahlia murder is one of the better entries in the series. A notch below the the series-opening Nitti Trilogy, but still a gripping read or listen. Start with the Nitti books, then hop in anywhere, then end up with the more recent JFK trilogy. You won't be disappointed!!

Max Allan Collins is as good as it gets when it comes to mysteries, and especially in his chosen genre -- true crime solved by his own fictional detective, Nathan Heller -- Collins is unbeatable. ANGEL IN BLACK is a haunting rendition of the Black Dahlia murder in L.A. -- a story I didn't know when I began reading the book. As usual, his research is impeccable (I've since done my own research on this) and his rendering of the people involved brings you straight into the heart of the story. His solution may not be correct, but it is compelling (and no one really knows, either -- the Black Dahlia murder remains officially unsolved). And like his other brilliant Heller stories -- STOLEN AWAY (the Lindbergh kidnapping), FLYING BLIND (Amelia Earhart disappearance), MAJIC MAN (Roswell, New Mexico UFO incident) ... you believe it and cannot help but be drawn in further. Don't miss this; it has its gruesome moments (which I know will automatically recommend it to some people) but it also has some marvelous characters and surprising relevations. Heller solves this one the way he does all his investigating -- he's tough, sexy and can't help but get involved. This one is a five-star winner.

Max Collins has done it again. I am constanty amazed at the research that the author has done and how he has manages to merge fact and fiction into a very plausible story. After reading every Nathan Heller novel I do research on my own because the author is able to pique my interest in the true story. In this story he presents a plausible new theory to explain the Black Orchid murder case and I have already gone back to read some of original newspaper accounts. I love reading the author's notes as well as the story and will continue to enjoy the Nathan Heller novels.

Pretty hard to believe that a homicidal maniac is able to check in and out of a mental hospital without law enforcement being aware. Other than that it was fairly entertaining as most of this series has been.
Another fine entry in the Nate Heller universe. This is one of the great unsolved cases in the history of crime. What more could you want? A beautiful girl horribly murdered and mutilated. A beautiful girl with a sordid and ugly past. Famous people including movie stars and such. True this sound like a pure novel, but it is based on research of a real crime. Learn what life was like in another era where this crime was viewed as something monsterously evil, but today might not get much time on the news except for the salacious nature of the deed.
