HEIST EVERY STORE IN A MALL IN ONE NIGHT—
OR NOLAN’S WOMAN WILL DIE!

Nolan and Jon have put their lives of crime behind them—but when a cruel adversary from their past resurfaces, they’re forced back into the heist game with a brutal ultimatum: pull off an insanely ambitious overnight robbery or Nolan’s kidnapped lover won’t live to see the morning.

Appearing in bookstores for the first time in 35 years, this is Nolan’s biggest and deadliest job—and MAD MONEY also features, for the first time ever in the same volume, the bonus full-length novel MOURN THE LIVING, offering a look back at Nolan’s early years as a professional thief.

  • First publication ever in one volume
  • Two full-length novels—including the longest Nolan novel ever written
  • The final book in Hard Case Crime’s collection of Max Allan Collins’ classic Nolan heist novels
