Chicago P.I. Nate Heller heads to D.C. to protect Secretary of Defense James Forrestal from a murder threat...but is the statesman’s worst enemy his own mental illness? The surprising, UFO-tinged truth is in Roswell, New Mexico.
Nathan begins his inquiries that lead him to the Majestic Twelve, a strange but deadly militia with a conspiratorial plan. Other radical groups with specific agendas also surface. However, the investigation takes a wild twist as the alleged UFO incident at Roswell, New Mexico keeps surfacing. As Nathan tries to figure out what the threats to Forrestal have to do with an alien spacecraft, he runs into silence and roadblocks. It is obvious that someone want him to drop the case.
MAJIC MAN is a superb entry in the wonderful Heller historical mystery series. The intermingling of real persona and events within a fast-paced story line brings home the paranoia that shaped the toddler years of the baby boomers. The Roswell theory developed by Max Allan Collins is plausible and should interest individuals who devour any reference to 1947 New Mexico. Mr. Collins will probably attain best seller status as well as critical acclaim and awards for his tenth Heller tale.
In this book we are taken to Roswell, and we follow Nate while he investigates the UFO rumors. As usual, we get to meet some real people from the past, and it's great fun.
Nate is a man's man, and a stereotypical PI of the times. And reading it is a real joy. And the beauty of this series is that you can read it out of order.
So don't wait, dive in!!!
