The Fight Against Organized Crime in America
To Be Published by St. Martin’s Press
The latest in the New York Times Bestselling History Series
(New York, New York - November 10, 2020) - Trail-blazing TV journalist Bill O’Reilly, the best-selling author of the Killing history series, will add KILLING THE MOB: The Fight Against Organized Crime in America to the roster of record-breaking books that he co-writes with Martin Dugard. This will be the 10th book in a series that includes instant #1 national bestsellers, sales of nearly 18 million copies worldwide, and over 320 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Publication date is set for May 4, 2021.
O’Reilly traces the brutal history of 20th century organized crime in the United States, and expertly plumbs the history of this nation’s most notorious serial robbers, conmen, and especially, mob family bosses. Covering the period from the 1930s to the 1980s, O’Reilly traces the prohibition-busting bank robbers of the Depression Era, such as Bonnie & Clyde, Pretty Boy Floyd and Baby-Face Nelson. In addition, the authors highlight the creation of the Mafia Commission, the power struggles within the “Five Families,” and the battles to control Cuba, Las Vegas and Hollywood, as well as the personal war between the U.S. Attorney General Bobby Kennedy and legendary Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa.
O’Reilly and Dugard turn these legendary criminals and their true-life escapades into a read that rivals the most riveting crime novel. With KILLING THE MOB, their hit series is primed for its greatest success yet.
