    john dillinger slept here

    Author: Paul Maccabee, Publisher: Minnesota Historical Society Press, Copyright: 1995 Paul Maccabee, Theme of Book: Crime and Corruption in St. Paul, Main Characters: Multiple gang members and Law enforcement, Setting: St. Paul, I really enjoyed this book. It was filled with great facts and showed that even the law had its dark side. I was really surprised when I found out how much research went into this book before it was even being put together. I was also surprised to find out that St. Paul was one of the biggest havens for gangsters in the 20's and 30's. I really recommended this book if you are into gangster active in 1920's and 30's.

    John Dillinger Slept Here: A Crooks' Tour of Crime and Corruption in St. Paul, 1920-1936

    As a fellow historian and Author of the forthcoming book, 'Dillinger, The Hidden Truth,' I can honesty say that this is a very good book, containing good facts on St. Paul's early crime years. The book also includes several rare photographs. I would highly recommend this book to all readers interested in the crime and corruption of the Great Depression era.
