Product Description

Product Description

Orson Welles is the bombastic wonder boy of radio and stage. But is he also a murderer?

Walter Gibson—creator of pulp superhero the Shadow—travels to New York City to collaborate on a script with Welles, star of the radio show The Mercury Theatre on the Air. The young Welles is a charming but difficult taskmaster who relishes dramatic blowouts with friends, lovers, and colleagues. So when a dead body is found in the studio minutes before the live broadcast of The War of the Worlds, Gibson knows Welles will be the New York Police Department’s number one suspect. Gibson has exactly one hour—while Welles is on the air enacting the infamous hoax story of a Martian invasion—to find the real murderer and clear the radio star’s name. With its brilliant reconstruction of the broadcast that hoodwinked the nation, The War of the Worlds Murder is a paean to radio’s golden age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fact or fiction. An intriguing blend! 15 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read all the "Disaster" books by Mr Collins and loved them all. They blend desperate, true events, and real characters with fictional murders and detective work. Famous authors find themselves both in harm's way, and watching horrific, unforgettable, momentous disasters. Brilliantly researched, and lovingly told, through each tale I felt Mr Collins appreciation of his literary heroes. These events really did not happen in exactly the way they are related to the reader, but Mr Collins' skill is that when I'd finished each book I could still wonder if it ALL couldn't' t have been true!
