Has  anyone  heard  of  or  read  any  books  by  Max Allen Collins. (writes mysteries)

What  I  like  to  know  is,  does  all  his  books  come  in  comic strip  form  writing.

I  received  a book  "Road to Perdition", and  no  where  does  it  state  that  it  would  be  in  comic  form.

Some do, some don't. What's the ISBN for the one that you received?

ETA: Actually, I take that back. I've been looking over the various versions. I see that most of them seem to be listed as a graphic novel in some fashion. Since it was made into a movie, the novelization is probably not, but most of them are.

That one is not clearly labeled. Unlike the rest of them, it doesn't list the Comics & Graphic Novel genre as one of the subjects. There are clues, but nothing definite.

I looked it up on Amazon and it was more clearly defined as a graphic novel by some of the reviews.

At 304 pages, it's a huge graphic novel. So, I can understand why you thought it was a regular book.

Thank you, I guess I should use Amazon like you just did before I request unknown authors/books

I have read alot of Max Allan Collins. He writes the CSI books (mostly the one set in Vegas) .  So I would say that "no" not all of his books come in comic strip style

All the Max Allan Collins books I have seen are regular novels.  I get them for my cousin, who loves him.
