Summary
"This first full-length biography promotes Lamm from his supporting role, tracing his exploits and his use of concepts like "casing" a bank and planning escape routes. Analysis of arrest records finds Lamm's genius as a criminal mastermind overrated, and a detailed examination of the trial of Walter Detrich and James Clark brings to life Lamm's spectacular downfall"--Provided by publisher
