Dillinger's Wild Ride

July 10, 2009

Elliott Gorn's book chronicles the year, 1933-34, when Dillinger's gang raided banks across the American heartland and stole hundreds of thousands of dollars. The spree triggered new anti-crime legislation and helped bring about the modern FBI. "Dillinger's Wild Ride" arrived a few weeks ahead of the 75th anniversary of the gangster's death in June 2009.
