About the Original Book:
The legends of John Dillinger, Al Capone, Lucky Luciano, Bonnie and Clyde, and the dozen other gangsters who colored the last century are well known to anyone with the slightest interest in popular history. What is not well known are their back stories—the landscape that pushed them into lives of crime, the ways they worked with the federal government, and the cunning and betrayal that led to their eventual downfall.
Digging through archives, newspapers, and police records, O’Reilly and Dugard trace the rise and fall of the serial robbers of the 1930s, the growth of the Italian-American Mafia in the 40s through the 70s, and the series of events that all but wiped out America’s crime families in the mid-80s. What emerges is an account of 20th century organized crime that is as shocking as it is thrilling.
