In Killing the Mob, Bill O’Reilly and coauthor Martin Dugard trace the brutal history of twentieth-century organize crime in the United States, through the larger-than-life stories of the most notorious outlaws, murderers, and Mob family bosses. Beginning in the 1930s, O’Reilly and Dugard reveal the truth behind the mythology of the bank robbers of the Depression era, such as John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Baby Face Nelson. Then, following the rise of organize crime, the authors highlight the creation of the Mafia Commission, the power struggles within the Five Families, and the growth of the FBI under its director, J. Edgar Hoover. After detailing the secret links between the Mafia and the Allies in World War II, Killing the Mob recounts the Mob battles to control Cuba, Las Vegas, and Hollywood; its controversial relationship with the Kennedy White House; and the personal war between U.S. Attorney General Bobby Kennedy and the legendary Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa.

Ranging from such killers as Al Capone and Albert Anastasia to secretive bosses like Sam Giancana and high-profile gangsters including Johnny Roselli and John Gotti, O’Reilly and Dugard turn these legendary criminals and their true-life escapades into a read that rivals the most riveting crime novels. Killing the Mob shows just how deeply the Mob has influenced every aspect of American politics, entertainment, society, and labor in a page-turning history with shocks and surprises on every page.
