When her husband was murdered on the orders of Chicago mobster FrankNitti, Georgette Winkler -- wife of one of Al Capone's "American Boys" -- set out toexpose the Chicago Syndicate. After an attempt to publish her story was squelched bythe mob, she offered it to the FBI in the mistaken belief that they had theauthority to strike at the racketeers who had killed her husband Gus. Discovered 60years later in FBI files, the manuscript describes the couple's life on the run, theSt. Valentine's Day Massacre (Gus was one of the shooters), and other headlinecrimes of that period. Prepared for publication by mob expert William J. Helmer, AlCapone and His American Boys is a compelling contemporary account of the heyday ofChicago crime by a woman who found herself married to the mob.
