A New York Times Bestselling Author
A Nathan Heller Thriller

It’s 1954 and Heller takes on the Sam Sheppard case — a young doctor is startled from sleep and discovers his wife brutally murdered. He claims that a mysterious intruder killed his wife. But all the evidence points to a disturbed husband who has grown tired of married life and yearned to be free at any cost. Sheppard is swiftly convicted and sent to prison. But was the evidence tampered with to fit a convenient narrative to settle scores? Nate can’t prove it and has to let the case drop. Heller’s given another chance years later and this time he’s determined to free the man . . . even if it brings his own death a bit closer.


Customer Reviews

“Collins has not only devised an original take on what may well be the most-written-about crime in history but also made Heller’s role in the case plausible.”

— Publishers Weekly

“Target Lancer brings us a different, fact-based assassination scenario, eerily paralleling the Dealey Plaza nightmare.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“Collins spins a fascinating tale with appearances by Jack Ruby, Jimmy Hoffa, and Bobby Kennedy. Gripping from the get-go, this will satisfy both Heller fans and assassination wonks ever eager for a new spin on the story.”

— Booklist

“Collins has an outwardly artless style that conceals a great deal of art.”

— The New York Times
