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 fueled 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.

"A rigorously researched biographical novel based on the later years of the infamous mobster follows the efforts of an FBI junior agent who in 1944 is dispatched by J. Edgar Hoover to infiltrate Capone's organisation, an effort that is compromised by Capone's haunted memories of prison and declining health. By the Shamus Award-winning author of Infernal Angels."
