"Rollicking. ... Equal parts violent melodrama and meticulous procedural... with enough bloody action to engage readers enthralled by tales of good versus evil." -- New York Times Book Review "Superb. ... Mr. Gardner earns an A+ for his research and an A++ for his writing. -- New York Journal of Books "An elegant narrative that's as entertaining as it is historically accurate... A must-read." -- Publishers Weekly "Action packed...A gripping read and probably tells all there is to tell about a legendary group of psychopaths." -- Kirkus "[This] bullet-by-bullet account... sheds considerable light on a neglected aspect of the gang's life of crime... well done." -- Booklist "Rewarding. ... Gardner's re-creation of the Northfield Raid... orchestrates the often-unwieldy particulars of the event with considerable virtuosity. ... It would be hard to imagine a more thorough account." -- Washington Post
