This non-fiction book explores the collective experience of the Dillinger "gun molls." This exciting book reveals their human qualities as viewed through relationships to John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, among others. As wives and girlfriends of the Depression-era's public enemies, they shift through continuing themes of expectation and disillusionment. Their conflicting loyalties are challenged by the unrelenting pressure of the U.S. Government to betray their men.
