This biography of "Scarface," Al Capone, brings alive the era of racketeers and bootlegging in the '20's and '30's. Moving from Capone's birth in 1899 through Prohibition in Chicago to his prison term on Alcatraz, Bergreen depicts the life of this notorious gangster. Michael Kramer creates vivid images of the events and people that made Capone such a legendary figure. Kramer sounds like a newspaper man--straightforward and compelling, even-paced and dispassionate. This is an authoritative, fascinating portrayal of a complex man and the era that shaped him.
