about

From Max Allan Collins, 2017 Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Honoree for a Lifetime of Excellence in Mystery Writing

First there was Collins’ legendary graphic novel…then came the Academy Award winning movie and his bestselling screenplay novelization. Now Collins presents an epic new novel, combining and expanding upon all that came before, to create the ultimate version of his unforgettable story.

Depression-era Chicago is awash in liquor and blood, ruled by guns, graft, and gangsters like John Looney. His most feared enforcer is Michael O’Sullivan, known as the “Angel of Death.” But when O’Sullivan’s twelve-year-old son witnesses a gangland murder committed by Looney’s brutal son, O’Sullivan’s entire family is marked for execution to cover up the crime. O’Sullivan and his son find themselves on the run… and seeking vengeance… on the long, bloody road to Perdition.

"Collins expands this crime tale set in Depression-era Chicago—originally a graphic novel and later a Sam Mendes–directed film that was itself novelized—into a terrific full-length novel... Collins’s modern classic really shines in this new incarnation." Publishers Weekly STARRED Review

"A richer and more satisfying version of the tale, one that combines the swift pace of the graphic novel with the well-developed father-son relationships of Mendes’ movie — and that includes both additional hard-boiled dialogue and more historical context for the Depression-era story set in Al Capone’s Illinois. And Collins’ writing, always crisp and vividly visual, is at its best here." The Washington Post
