Two for the Money
by Max Allan Collins

To wipe the slate clean with an old enemy, professional thief Nolan agrees to pull one last bank heist — but when he’s double-crossed, he’ll stop at nothing to get back what’s his. Fortunately, Nolan has a couple of things going for him: an uncanny knack for survival and an unmatched hunger for revenge... * New York Times bestselling author of ROAD TO PERDITION, basis of the acclaimed movie starring Tom Hanks and Paul Newman * TWO FOR THE MONEY includes two complete novels that tell a single epic story — published for the first time in a single volume. * Features a brand-new Afterword by the author * Noir Originals on Max Allan Collins’ Nolan series: "I’ve loved every single Nolan book...finding Nolan [is] like discovering a new kind of drug." Raves for the work of Max Allan Collins... "No one can twist you through a maze with as much intensity and suspense as Max Allan Collins." — Clive Cussler "One of the new masters of the genre." — Atlanta Journal Constitution "Collins breaks out a really good one, knocking over the hard-boiled competition (Parker and Leonard for sure, maybe even Puzo)...the book is unputdownable. Never done better." — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Oh, Murderer Mine
by Norbert Davis

Doan and Carstairs return in another laugh-filled riot. Doan, the chubby private eye with a fondness for weak women and strong drink, and Carstairs, his enormous Great Dane sidekick, have been hired by fifty-four-year-old but still glamorous beauty maven Heloise of Hollywood to make sure that no young lovely tries to steal her 26-year-old hunk of a husband, Eric Trent. Shortly thereafter, Trent, a meteorologist at a local college (and known in the magazines as "Handsome Lover Boy") steals the office of young anthropologist Melissa Gregory, shots are fired, Carstairs runs wild in a beauty salon, and bodies start falling. This 1946 entertainment is the final volume in the Carstairs and Doan trilogy, a series heralded by critics as one of the funniest in the annals of private eye fiction.
