Bad Seeds in the Big Apple by Patrick Downey
Book Description"I didn't have anything better to do. That's why I went around bumping off the cops." So said Francis 'Two-Gun' Crowley after shooting it out with dozens of policemen in, arguably, the most spectacular siege in New York City's history.Crowley was just one of a vast number of outlaws - male and female - who terrorized New York in the years between the World Wars. It was a period of lawlessness unprecedented in American history - including the gun-slinging old West."Bad Seeds in the Big Apple", the first book of its kind, presents an unparalleled look at the bandits, gunmen, and desperados of Prohibition- and Depression-era New York - including jewel thief extraordinaire Richard Reese Whittmore, extortion queen Vivian Gordon, and dozens of others.
