Chicago Assassin by Richard Shmelter

Book Description

During the 1920s, Chicago led the way in gangland violence. As a result, many infamous personalities have become legendary in America's criminal history. "Chicago Assassin" is the remarkable story of one such legend - 'Machine Gun' Jack McGurn.Known to have been a well-mannered, law-abiding young man, he changed dramatically when his father was assassinated by the White Hand Gang in a case of mistaken Identity. After avenging his father's death, he came to the attention of Al Capone, who invited him into his organization. It was here that he rose to power and notoriety, with 25 known kills - the most famous of which became known as the St. Valentine's Day Massacre.In an ironic twist of fate, he was murdered - on Capone's own orders - seven years later on the eve of St. Valentine's Day.
