Jack Higgins Collection - Luciano's Luck & Dillinger [Audio]
LUCIANO'S LUCKIn the Summer of 1943, the Allies were poised to invade Sicily. Yet the price would be high in blood and time - unless the island people rose in revolt against their Nazi oppressors. But only the Mafia could command an uprising, and Mafia supremo Antonia Luca hated everything American. Someone very persuasive indeed was needed to change his mind. And they didn't come any more persuasive than the man known as Lucky Luciano... DILLINGERIn 1934, after his spectacular jailbreak from a cell in Indiana, Dillinger was like a ghost--some claimed to spot him in New York, others in London, New Orleans, or California. Though the FBI would eventually find and kill Dillinger in Chicago, speculation about his whereabouts in those mysterious final months never waned. In Jack Higgins's suspenseful imagining, Dillinger flees to Mexico, where his attempts at finding freedom launch the fugitive into the clutches of men much more dangerous than the federal agents on his trail. This dramatic account of Dillinger's final days brings him face-to-face with bloodthirsty bandits and corrupt police officers, breathing vivid life into the story of America's most fascinating outlaw.
