“A lot of history is hidden, especially crime history. Crime is part of history, part of who we are. So the history of crime is important to understanding our culture. Craig McGuire’s exploration of Brooklyn’s long, storied, infamous crime history is a gem! The list is much longer than 100 but this survey of historic crime figures in Brooklyn is a delightful read for devoted true-crime fans who want to go deeper than today’s headlines.”

– Ron Franscell, Author of “Morgue: A Life in Death

 

“Having thoroughly enjoyed Craig McGuire’s first book, BEYOND THE IDES, I looked forward to reading BROOKLYN’S MOST WANTED. I was not disappointed. It is well researched, informative, and entertaining, and will appeal not only to readers of true crime, but history buffs and those who simply enjoy learning unusual and fascinating facts.”

– Barbara Casey, Author of “Assata Shakur: A 20th Century Escaped Slave

 

“I’ve been a Brooklyn native my entire life. To find out that my hometown was filled with so much debauchery was eye opening. This book totally dives into the underbelly of New York’s most infamous borough. Such an interesting account. This book is highly recommended for anyone that loves true crime (you get 100 stories in one book!) and is interested in New York city and it’s origins. I couldn’t put it down.”
