Thank you for stopping by. I have brought out a new book via Cumberland House Publishing called Bad Seeds in the Big Apple: Bandits, Killers and Chaos in New York 1920-1940. I also had the pleasure of writing the forward to Rose Keefe's new gangster bio The Starker: Big Jack Zelig, the Becker-Rosenthal Case, and the advent of the Jewish Gangster. Please check out my daily blog Dead Guys in Suits at for updates on these as well as the dead gangster of the day and other gangster goodness.
