Public Enemies [Film Tie-in] Summary


Public Enemies [Film Tie-in]: The True Story of America's Greatest Crime Wave by Bryan Burrough

In 1933, a crime wave blazed across America. Fuelled by cheap liquor and fast cars, gangs of chancers, bank robbers, gunslingers and their molls cut a murderous, cash-snatching dash through the US - and became legends. Among them were homicidal Baby Face Nelson, outlaws Bonnie and Clyde, cranky hillbilly Ma Barker and, most deadly of all, the suave gentleman criminal John Dillinger. This is the breakneck story of America's most wanted, and their nemesis: J. Edgar Hoover and his strong-arm law enforcers, the agents of the FBI. Using shocking secret files and eyewitness accounts, "Public Enemies" reveals the facts about the crime spree that shook America.

Public Enemies [Film Tie-in] Reviews


'A rollicking ride' Guardian 'Entrancing ... fascinating ... definitive ... a wild and amazing story' Washington Post 'Excellent true crime ... brims with vivid portraiture' New York Times 'This blockbuster movie of a volume ... crackles and pops with dialogue so outrageous that you suspect a dozen scriptwriters have worked on it, but every word is true' Spectator
