In Michigan, the roar in the “Roaring Twenties” was the deafening blast of a sawed-off shotgun or the staccato thunder of a Thompson submachine gun punctuating a bank robbery. In post WWI Michigan, a plague of ruthless desperadoes, better armed and driving faster cars than the police, cut a deadly swath across the state ranked eight in the country for bank robberies. Tom Powers uncovers a violent and forgotten era in Michigan in 23 riveting chapters.
