Summary

In 1944, after Al Capone has been released from prison, J. Edgar Hoover assigns an FBI junior agent to insinuate himself into Capone's life and gain his trust so that Hoover can nail as many of Capone's Mob confederates as possible. Capone, suffering from the neurological effects of syphilis, is alternately lucid, full of the passion and energy that fuelled his rise to the pinnacle of American crime... and rambling or ranting, the broken shell of a man released from prison so he could die at home with his family.
With the narrative gifts honed in dozens of novels, Loren Estleman has captured the essence of this American icon as never before. With subtly nuanced portrayals of those in Capone's circle - his wife Mae Capone, members of the Chicago Outfit including the deadly Frank Nitti - as well as his nemesis, J. Edgar Hoover, Hoover's secretary Helen Gandy and others, The Confessions of Al Capone is a major literary achievement.
