From the minds of Road to Perdition author Max Allan Collin and artist Terry Beatty, comes the third collection of five classic Ms Tree comics!
The black widow of detective fiction returns in this third volume of classic Ms Tree stories by the award-winning writer Max Allan Collins. Join Ms Michael Tree, the 6ft, 9mm-carrying private eye through her thrilling casebook following the death of her husband on their wedding night. No case is too small, no violence is too extreme – just as long as it gets the job done.
Praise for Ms Tree:
“For those who prefer their comics a little harder, a little faster, and a whole lot pulpier … hit[s] the bullseye and blows it to pieces.” – Mystery Scene
“A saga rife with treachery, violence, and intrigue… a ‘must-read’ for mystery graphic novel connoisseurs.” – Midwest Book Review
