Did You Know?
I have been chastised for making this claim, but I do feel I invented the historical hard-boiled detective novel. Not the period private eye novel ([Stuart] Kaminsky and [Andrew] Bergman and Robert Towne and maybe a couple others pre-date me), but using a fictional noirish protagonist in a story that is otherwise solidly based on fact. That's my contribution.
Filmmaker William Lustig
(director of Maniac Cop
(1988)) once owned an option on Collins' novel "Spree". The story centered on a former thief named Nolan who is blackmailed into carrying out a heist in a Midwestern mall where he now owns a restaurant. Collins has written seven novels featuring this character.
