A tale of love, murder, insanity and the law. Plus two zealous newspaper reporters and a couple of clever detectives.
This is the true, if unlikely, story of a 1930s Boston hold-up artist, the MIT graduate who loved him, his wife the minister’s daughter, and his “imbecile” brother.
And a bank robbery and the murder of two police officers.
Among other events.
“A triumph. The narrative crackles with indelible, three-dimensional characters who draw readers into a web of love, jealousy, loyalty and ultimately, murder. Gorenstein writes so vividly that it’s easy to imagine a movie adaptation.” **
