A dictionary of American criminal biography which begins with shy, tubercular Burton (""Bud"") Abbott who strangled a fourteen year-old girl and burned at San Quentin for it, ends with dapper syndicate gangster Abner (""Longy"") Zwillman, and twixt and tween there are more (about 400) outlaws, rapists, kidnappers, killers, bombers, forgers, horsethieves, hijackers, and robbers than you can shake a gat at.
