Early Crimes

(2013)
A collection of stories by

 
 
For fans of the popular author of Road to Perdition, here is an opportunity to see a young writer developing his themes and techniques. Two short stories from the late 1960s reveal the strong influences of Jim Thompson and James M. Cain on Max Allan Collins's hard-boiled career. And a previously unpublished caper novel, Shoot the Moon, confirms Collins's debt to his crime novel mentor Donald Westlake. "I present these stories," says Collins in his Introduction, "because the young writer I once was very desperately wanted to be published, and read." With millions of books sold in the exciting Nate Heller, Mallory, Quarry and Nolan series, plus his posthumous collaborations with Mickey Spillane, Collins has more than achieved that ambition. These early works provide a glimpse of the young crime writer developing his formidable skills.
