Annotation

A seemingly straightforward kidnapping-for-ransom scheme by 1930s gangster "Machine Gun" Kelly is thrown into near-whimsical chaos by the greed of two partners, a determined former Texas Ranger and Kelly's two-faced wife. By the author of Devil's Garden. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.

Summary

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Quinn Colson series comes a fast, funny, violent noir novel based on the crimes of George “Machine Gun” Kelly.

In July 1933, a gangster staged the kidnapping-for-ransom of an Oklahoma oilman. He would live to regret it. What started clean soon turns messy as two of “Machine Gun” Kelly's partners cut themselves into the action, a determined former Texas Ranger makes tracking Kelly his mission, and his wife, ever alert to her own self-interest, starts playing both sides... 

Set in the first days of the modern FBI, Infamous is a passionate blend of historical novel and crime story featuring an unexpected hero, some of the most colorful supporting characters in recent crime fiction, and unforgettable femme fatale Kathryn Kelly—the Lady Macbeth of Depression-era crime.
