Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Among the revelations in this well-researched biography/social history, is that J. Edgar Hoover framed the legendary Depression-era bandit for most of the murders he was accused of but did not, in fact, commit, and that "Pretty Boy" was never at the infamous Kansas City Massacre of 1933. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
