by Stephen Hunter is the latest installment in the bestselling Bob Lee Swagger series, which finds Bob uncovering his family’s secret tommy gun war with 1930s gangsters like John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson (available May 16, 2017). The depths of the Depression were marked by an epidemic of bank robberies and the swashbuckling, Tommy-gun-toting outlaws who became household names.
