ONE NIGHT AT THE BIOGRAPH MURDER, MAYHEM AND THE MYSTERIOUS AFTERLIFE OF JOHN DILLINGER BY TROY TAYLOR THE LIFE, LEGEND & MYSTERY OF ONE OF AMERICA'S MOST FAMOUS OUTLAWS! As the Roaring 20's came to an end and America plunged into the Great Depression, celebrity outlaws began appearing on the front pages of the nation's newspapers. They were flashy bandits like Baby Face Nelson, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Bonnie and Clyde, but none of them achieved the fame of John Dillinger. Over the course of just one year, the Dillinger gang raided banks across the Midwest, stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars and eluding lawmen and agents from the fledgling FBI. Wild reports of Dillinger's swashbuckling exploits during stickups, jail breaks, shoot-outs, and high-speed car chases provided a welcome escape for Americans worn down by hard times and turned the bank robber into a legend. Dillinger's adventures ended in July 1934, when he was gunned down at the Biograph Theater in Chicago - or was he? In this new book in the Dead Men Do Tell Tales series, author Troy Taylor explores the mysteries that surrounded the life and death of John Dillinger. Starting with a rollicking history of Dillinger's life and crimes, this fast-paced account explores Dillinger's rise to "Public Enemy No. 1," from his bank robberies to his narrow escapes from jails in Crown Point, Indiana, and impossible spots like Little Bohemia. As Dillinger managed to elude the law and make a mockery of the agents who chased him, he was cheered on by his adoring public, which made his sudden demise all the more shocking. Strangely, though, solid evidence exists to say that it was not Dillinger who died that night at the Biograph. But if not, then who was it? Discover the many secrets that still surround the story of Dillinger's death and the bizarre conspiracy that plotted to make sure that the truth was never revealed. What evidence exists that Dillinger survived the murder plan? Who died that night? Who is the ghost still said to walk the alley where a man was gunned down? Find out for yourself in one of the most compelling books in the series so far!
