The author, a former reporter for the "Wall Street Journal," brings his uncompromising standards for research and his superb knack for storytelling to one of the most thrilling stories in American history. This eye-opening biography reveals that Capone was the target of one of the most intense criminal investigations in American history with orders coming directly from the White House. Capone flaunted his criminal success so openly that President Hoover insisted the gangster be stopped. And, despite his many misdeeds, Capone may have been the victim of a rigged trial.
"Get Capone" also offers a bold new theory to explain the Valentine's Day Massacre and sheds new light on Capone's connection or lack thereof to the crime.
