Synopsis

Do you like true crime stories?

You should love these tales then

Originally authentic police files, True American Crime Stories are from the 1920s
through to the 1950s - the era of gangster, molls and prohibition.
Almost (but not quite), lost in the mists of time, these tales romp
along with plenty of action and recreate the atmosphere of this exciting
and dangerous era using the vernacular of the times.

You may not have heard much about some of these bad guys, but they were real, ruthless
hoodlums and all had their "15 minutes of fame", leaving trails of death
and mayhem behind them.  Most did not live to an old age, and those
that did were probably in jail.

Their escapades were daring and reckless and many paid the ultimate price in the end.

Volume 1 contains:

The Jekyll and Hyde Mob

After a rash of robberies, lawmen of the Los Angeles Sheriff's office had
killed off or jailed every gang of bank robbers in the county. However,
three suave gentlemen continued to loot the banks in daring fashion,
leaving the lawmen completely clueless.


The Whispering Bride

Death cast its long, silent shadow over a sleepy New England town as Mrs.
Wegner, a widow, waved good-bye to the last of the summer boarders.
Little did she realize that she was waving good-bye forever, that death
would soon claim her as its victim in the strange case of THE WHISPERING
BRIDE.

The Red Bandit

The desperation of a hunted man gave Oklahoma its greatest reign of terror when a youth, vowing never to serve a 75 year rap for robbery, set off a series of events that gave the authorities a veritable nightmare as they pursued their quest down
the bloody trail of crime.

The Master Forgers

Counterfeit checks - hundreds of them - were flooding Milwaukee in 1937 and 1938 until science scored a victory for the law!
