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!

I love the concept behind this series of books.They are stand alone books meshing historical fact with fiction. I have read this book first as I was the most intrigued and excited by its plot line. Max Allan Collins sets the scene and the historical context really well and the story moves along at a reasonably quick pace. Sometimes the scene setting chapters break into the stories flow; but overall I was very impressed with the book and look forward to reading the rest of the series. Thanks to Amazon for introducing me to this author via the special offers on kindle.

So, read the blurb and loved the concept. I am a sucker for a historical novels of any type and murder mystery ones are particularly good fun. So I start reading the prologue...which goes on and on and i realise that it is simply a self aggrandising tale of his development as a mystery writer and has nothing at all to do with the story. I skip a few pages and start at the start...and read and read and read...i am 50% of the way through and no one has been murdered yet! surely the basic premise of any murder mystery IS A MURDER or at least a mysterious death of some kind. So it is not a murder mystery but in fact it is turning out to be a very dull account of the creation of Orson Wells famous broadcast of the War of the Worlds...no murder!

In addition to the moribund writing style i.e. 'stepping onto a car otherwise empty but for a young elevator attendant'(so you're saying the elevator was not actually empty then?

The 'history' instead of being woven into the fabric of the story it is delivered in chunks of italics every few chapters...paragraphs about the cotton club, about Orson wells early life, about prohibition all seemingly lifted from wikipidia and dropped unedited into the book to fill it out.

Utter rubbish I wont be finishing it

An intriguing tale of Orson Welles' famous broadcast that is pacy and fascinating -a good absorbing yarn to enjoy thoroughly!
