Title10,000 Public Enemies
AbstractBook review of "Ten Thousand Public Enemies" by Courtney Ryley Cooper about crime and prominent criminals (such as John Lazia, et al.) in Kansas City tracked by "the United States government, Division of Investigation," led by J. Edgar Hoover. Information on Lazia's crimes from 1908 to 1917 before his rise to organized crime fame.
NotesHis [Courtney Cooper's] book 'Ten Thousand Public Enemies,' almost a novel of crime, is gleaned from the official sources of that now famous department of the federal government [the FBI]. What Verne Miller did in his Edgevale Road house in Kansas City when Fritz Mulloy telephoned that Frank Nash must be freed from federal officers, how Miller got Floyd and Richetti through Lazia, the ensuing massacre at the Union Station; dozens of such front page stories are viewed anew from back stage.
