Summary
Arriving in Chicago in 1920, Al Capone was an impetuous, affable young man of average intelligence. Within a few years he built a booming bootlegging business, corrupted the local police and courts, and became an international celebrity. Drawing on recently discovered documents, wiretap transcripts, and Capone's handwritten letters, Jonathan Eig tells the dramatic story of the rise and fall of the nation's most notorious criminal in rich new detail
Summary
Traces the criminal investigation of the notorious mobster, documenting his rise during the Prohibition era, the legal strategy that enabled his prosecution, and the possibility that he was innocent of the St. Valentine's Day massacre
