Description
By 1933, Prohibition had created the American gangster, and George "Machine Gun" Kelly and his wife, Kathryn, are among the most notorious criminals of the Great Depression. Kelly sets his sights on the easy-money racket of kidnapping, and his target is one of the richest oilmen in the Southwest; viewing the case as an opportunity, Justice Department bureaucrat J. Edgar Hoover is desperate to prove himself and his G-men. Here Joe Urschel—former executive director of the National Law Enforcement Museum—tells the thrilling story of how government agents pursued Kelly for 20,000 miles, and how their eventual success led to the establishment of an independent FBI.

"Many true-crime books claim to shine a light on their chosen eras. This one is the real deal."—Booklist (starred review)
