Read all about it!

I have a new Kindle short out:




Following the murders of a dance hall girl and police officer in the spring of 1931; nineteen-year old punk Francis "Two Gun" Crowley became the most wanted man in New York City. Traced to a fifth floor apartment on the Upper Westside, his capture would become one of the most dramatic confrontations in police history.

As thousands of New Yorkers gawked and newsreel cameras recorded the event from the streets below, Crowley shot it out with dozens of law enforcement officers. Him, running window to window banging away with his pistols and the police raking his apartment with rifle, shotgun and machine-gun fire before a final assault and surrender.
