In his detailed reconstruction of the outlaw George “Machine Gun” Kelly’s (1895-1954) most flamboyant crime, the kidnapping of a Texas oilman in 1933, Urschel, an award-winning journalist and former USAToday managing editor who is now executive director of the National Law Enforcement Museum, charts the 20,000-mile chase that made J. Edgar Hoover a household name and gave the country what amounted to a national police force, with FBI agents permitted to cross state lines in pursuit of suspects.
