KIRKUS REVIEW

This is another series of incidents from the of true crime, in line with Passport to Treason and Betrayal from the East. This time it is the work of the Intelligence Unit of the Treasury Department, a silent service which has brought to book some of the biggest criminals of the era. ?ere is the career and capture of Al Capone, of Larry Narper who specialized in spurious securities, of New York's Waxey Gordon, of Pittsburgh's Madam, -- Billis of Kansas City's Bose Pendergast, of Atlantic City's , -- Moe Ansenberg, of Nuey Leng's protege, -- Dr. Smith of Louisiana State University who made away with a col half million, and so on. Interesting assortment of criminals, and the painstaking means to their capture, in colloquially slanted treatment.
