Hardback. 1st US Edn. With the author's personal knowledge of J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, he is able to tell a story full of thrills, which makes all the more sensational reading for being actual fact. Here are the unvarnished stories of "Pretty Boy" Floyd, "Baby Face" Nelson, and other gangsters; the "dope" on a $20,000,000 kidnapping case; the story of the Scarlet Lady who had John Dillinger "put on the spot"; of the drive against the White Slave racket; of the Numbers racket, so prominent at the time; and many other. Finally, there is an enthralling account of how the FBI worked, why it accomplished what it did and its future in the society of the time. 256pp. 8vo. h/back. V. lightly browned edges and eps o/w Nr. F. in protected sunned Vg+ dw.
