Issue contents:
  • Adhesive tape was a recent invention when robbers began finding it handy in their field of endeavor. We learn in this issue’s feature by Jeffery S. King, that gangster George “Baby Face” Nelson once led a group of enterprising tape bandits.
  • Saving a person from the electric chair may not be the same as saving the person’s “life.” Thomas Hunt’s article reveals that one wrongly convicted man was emotionally destroyed despite Detective Joseph Petrosino’s heroic efforts to free him from Sing Sing’s Death House.
  • Did Albany’s powerful O’Connell Machine ensure the 1930s conviction and electrocution of widow Anna Antonio merely to shield local bootlegging and narcotics rackets? Ellen Poulsen considers the question.
  • Author Christian Cipollini reveals past, present and what might happen if he ever smiled for a photograph.
  • Richard N. Warner explores the unsolved murder of Chicago’s Sam Giancana.
  • Thomas Hunt ponders “Wherefore art thou, [Frank] Romeo?”
  • Book reviews and announcements.
