Publisher Description

In Public Enemies, bestselling author Bryan Burrough strips away the thick layer of myths put out by J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI to tell the full story—for the first time—of the most spectacular crime wave in American history, the two-year battle between the young Hoover and the assortment of criminals who became national icons: John Dillinger, Machine Gun Kelly, Bonnie and Clyde, Baby Face Nelson, Pretty Boy Floyd, and the Barkers. In an epic feat of storytelling and drawing on a remarkable amount of newly available material on all the major figures involved, Burrough reveals a web of interconnections within the vast American underworld and demonstrates how Hoover’s G-men overcame their early fumbles to secure the FBI’s rise to power.

Doesn't download completely

I paid for this book but can only read about a third of the way through. Then the next chapter says "loading" it eventually times out. I have removed the download and re downloaded. Still it doesn't work. I have deleted it from my collection and reinstalled the book. Still nothing. Good story, but a waste of my money on iBooks.
