"Atkins, who loves his characters colorful, makes his readers love them too, and it doesn't much matter whether they're naughty or nice."
From the Publisher
Annotation Although Ace Atkins's INAMOUS is a gangster story, gangster George "Machine Gun" Kelly turns out not to be the most compelling character: his shamelessly ambitious wife, the dazzling femme fatale Kathryn, completely steals the show. Kelly and Kathryn devise a plan to kidnap and hold ransom one of Oklahoma's richest oilmen, but their heist attracts the determined attention of a loosely organized band of lawmen, which would eventually become the first incarnation of the FBI. Aggressively prodded on to more and more extreme actions by Kathryn, Kelly also has to wrestle with greedy partners, as the law closes in. This is a great noir-tinged thriller, which Atkins sets in a rich historical moment and populates with a cast of ripe characters.
Editors Note "Compelling...[Atkins] captures the imminent end of the gangster heyday." | -Booklist || In July 1933, the gangster known as George "Machine Gun" Kelly staged the kidnapping-forransom of an Oklahoma oilman. He would live to regret it. || Once again Ace Atkins transforms real-life events into riveting, thrilling fiction. Infamous is a passionate blend of historical novel and crime story-set in the first days of the modern FBI, featuring an unexpected hero, some of the most colorful supporting characters in recent crime fiction, and the unforgettable Kathryn Kelly (George Kelly's wife), the Lady Macbeth of Depression-era crime.
