Infamous by Ace Atkins
Infamous by Ace Atkin
In July 1933, the gangster known as "Machine Gun" Kelly staged the kidnapping-for-ransom of an Oklahoma oilman.
He would live to regret it.
As infamous criminals go, George Kelly was never the sharpest knife in the drawer. A crime that started clean soon became very messy -- as two of his partners cut themselves into the action; a determined former Texas Ranger made tracking Kelly his mission; and Kelly's wife, Kathryn, ever alert to her own self-interest, played both ends against the middle.
The result is a riveting tale -- a passionate blend of historical novel and crime story -- set in the first days of the modern FBI, featuring a great unexpected hero, some of the most colorful supporting characters in recent crime fiction, and in Kathryn Kelly, the Lady Macbeth of Depression-era crime.
Inspired by a true story.
