According to the FBI, public enemy number one John Dillinger was gunned down by agents at the Biograph Theatre in July, 1934. However Jay Robert Nash calls this report into question in this fascinating piece of investigative journalism. Nash asserts that it was Dillinger's doppelgänger rather than the man himself whose life was taken in Chicago. Full of colorful characters and rich descriptions, this book is an essential for any true crime buff, whether you agree with Nash's theory or not.
