  • About the Edition

    In 1944, after Al Capone has been released from prison, J. Edgar Hoover assigns an FBI junior agent to insinuate himself into Capone"s life, in the guise of a Catholic priest, so that Hoover can nail his mob confederates. Suffering the neurological effects of syphilis, Capone is alternately lucid -- full of the passion and energy that fueled his rise to the pinnacle of crime -- and a rambling, ranking, broken shell of a man released from prison to die at home.
