Overview

Strip for Murder by Max Allan Collins, Beatty Terry

Colorful characters with murderous motives populate this illustrated mystery, which unfolds during the Broadway season of 1953. Former striptease artist Maggie Starr continues "stripping" by distributing comic strips through her late husband's newspaper syndicate. When the heated rivalry between a pair of her cartoonists ends in homicide, Maggie and her stepson, Jack, turn detective. Together they seek the killer among a rogues' gallery of loan sharks, jealous husbands, bitter artists, and other suspects.
Author Max Allan Collins was acclaimed by Mickey Spillane himself as "a terrific writer," and this fast-paced romp through a flavorful era in comic strip history is enriched by Terry Beatty's atmospheric illustrations.
