Public Enemies: America's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-34 - Bryan Burrough Packed full of information: what you already knew, what you only thought you knew, and what you never even suspected. A good read but dry, occasionally circular and resembling a laundry list of crimes and the many ways the early FBI made themselves look like idiots. Burrough did his research and lays it all out here in Public Enemies, and it's a solid, informative read.
