Summary
  • "A thrilling Jazz Age chronicle of America's first gangster couple, Margaret and Richard Whittemore"--
  • Baltimore, in the heart of the Jazz Age. Margaret and Richard Whittemore reached for the dream of a better life. They headed up a gang that in less than a year stole over one million dollars' worth of diamonds and precious gems-- over fifteen million dollars today. Margaret was the archetypal gun moll/femme fatale, Richard the quintessential bad boy whose cunning and violent amorality turned their dreams into reality. He killed at least three men, and when he promised to confess if she were set free, they became heroes to a generation of young Americans, the tabloids breathlessly reporting the details of their star-crossed romance. -- adapted from jacket
