9780141037943: Public Enemies [Film Tie-in]: The True Story of America's Greatest Crime Wave

In the summer of 1933 an amazing group of chancers, misfits and psychopaths took to the American road. Fuelled by the Depression, fast cars and cheap guns, these freelance gangsters terrorized a vast swathe of banks and drugstores across the Midwest. Bonnie and Clyde, Dillinger, Machine Gun Kelly, Baby Face Nelson, the Barker gang, Pretty Boy Floyd and others went on a crime spree that turned them into legends in their own - generally quite brief - lifetimes. As they tore across state lines, mocking the police and amassing fortunes, the gangsters had no idea that in Washington their nemesis was forming: J. Edgar Hoover's FBI. Public Enemies is the sensational story of the outlaws whose exploits became folklore, and the savage, myth-making response of those who hunted them down.

Review:

" [A] riveting true-crime tale . . . fascinating . . . the real story, it turns out, is much better than the Hollywood version." -"The Wall Street Journal" "A rollicking yarn whose prose bounces across the page like a getaway car through a wheat field." -"Newsweek" "An amazingly detailed true-life thriller that puts us on a stakeout alongside the feds, inside the banks while bullets fly, and inevitably, next to the criminals' bloody corpses." -"Entertainment Weekly"

Bryan Burrough is the author of Dragonfly: Nasa and the Crisis Aboard Mir, Vendetta: American Express and the Smearing of Edmond Safra and (with John Helyar) Barbarians at the Gate: The Fall of RJR Nabisco. He lives in New Jersey.
