By E.E. Kirkpatrick; signed by the author! The bizarre tale of the kidnapping of oil man Charles Urschel by "Machine Gun" Kelly during a bridge game at his home, and the subsequent evolution of Hoover's FBI.
This rare hardcover is a bit the worse for nearly 90 years of wear -- bumps and fraying to the cover, top and bottom; some foxing and page toning, and a previous owner's stamp on the flyleaf -- but the pages are fairly tight and the illustrations and layouts are a departure from the usual ho-hum snapshots of press conferences. Seldom seen at a double-digit price point, so invest in this one.
