Description

John Dillinger Slept Here leads you to nearly 70 of the Twin Cities' most notorious Prohibition speakeasies, gambling dens, gangland hideouts, brothels, and Murder Inc. killing sites. It reveals for the first time the secrets of J. Edgar Hoover's feud with Creepy Karpis, the love story behind the bloody Kansas City Massacre, and the battle between corrupt police officers and the FBI. This book is based on more than 100,000 pages of FBI files and wiretraps, prison and police records, and mob confessions. Interviews with 250 crime victims, policemen, gun molls, and family members of criminals bring these public enemies to life. You will also find Crooks' Tour maps and more than 130 rare FBI, police, and family photographs. The result is a landmark examination of how gangsters virtually held a major American city hostage -- with police co-operation for two decades.
