John Dillinger Slept Here: A Crooks' Tour of Crime and Corruption in St. Paul, 1920-1936
Minnesota Historical Society Press, 01.01.1995 - 362 Seiten
"Paul Maccabee's John Dillinger Slept Here is not just one of the best books ever written about Minneapolis-St. Paul, it is one of the best books of local history I have ever read -- about any city anywhere on Earth. While writing Public Enemies' I kept it on my desk at all times. I daresay one cannot call himself a real Minnesotan if you haven't read it. The book is just that darned good."
This book is based on more than 100,000 pages of FBI files and wiretaps, prison and police records, and mob confessions. Interviews with 250 crime victims, policemen, gun molls, and family members of criminals bring these public enemies to life. Crime historian Paul Maccabee takes you inside the bank robberies, gangland assassinations, and police intrigue of St. Paul's 1920s and1930s gangster era. You'll also find Crooks' Tour maps and more than 130 rare FBI, police, and family photographs.

This book was awesome. But I'm probably biased because I live in the Twin Cities and work in downtown St Paul at the MHS library--which holds all of Maccabee's research materials. Vollständige Rezension lesen
