In the early part of 20th Century America gangs of ruthless, lawless desperados roamed the countryside robbing banks and killing the lawmen set out to stop them. Their actions became part of pop culture lore and the leaders of these gangs like Bonnie and Clyde, John Dillinger and Pretty Boy Floyd filled the headline hungry tabloids of the day. Al Capone, who headed up his own vast, crime filled organization in Chicago, may have acted like a CEO but his response to enemies, without and within, was no less murderous and destructive. Dealers in Death: Murder and Mayhem in America tells the stories of these notorious criminals and the U.S. government's attempt and eventual success to bring them to justice and break their stranglehold on the public's imagination. Legendary Hollywood actor Broderick Crawford lends his distinctive voice to the narrative and takes us on a compelling journey of America's infamous past.
