I know, I know.....I've said a kazillion times how much I really like this series. But there are quite a few of them and I keep buying them. As I've said before, these books are only as interesting as the life of the real historic figure chosen by Max Allan Collins to insinuate his "film noir" gumshoe in the middle of. No one can deny that former Louisiana Governor and US Senator was a bigger-than-life personality. As usual, P.I. Heller is in the thick of things during Long's assassination and the subsequent investigation. What I particularly like about Collins' approach is that he presents an alternate motive or ending to the actual event that's believable. The story is well-researched with great dialogue. Narrator Dan John Miller gives the irreverent, womanizing Heller an "aw-shucks" boyish charm that I have yet to become weary of. Start at Book 1 of the series - grow and "grow up" with the most personable shamus since Raymond Chandler's "Philip Marlowe", Dashiell Hammett's "Sam Spade", and Mickey Spillane's "Mike Hammer".
