Editorial Reviews

Clarion ForeWord Reviews
"...a fascinating book that�s one part biography, one part memoir, and one part remembrance of Public Enemy #1." "Capone succeeds, balancing both the public history of Al, from the Valentine�s Day Massacre to his incarceration at Alcatraz, with personal photos, family recipes, and her own memories." "It brings a fresh perspective to the other Al Capone biographies, and finally gives the larger-than-life gangster the one thing that may have eluded him in life..."
