 Dary Matera
Best-selling author Dary Matera sets the Dillinger record straight, seventy years after the outlaw's death.
John Dillinger is an adrenaline-fueled narrative that reignites America's fascination with the sauve but deadly desperado who was the FBI's first "Public Enemy." Dubbed "The Jackrabbit" because of the way he leaped over bank cages and railings, Dillinger and his bank-robbing gang cut a criminal swath yet to be equaled.
With access to thousands of detailed accounts, and pages of telling photographs, Matera's definitive book describes every robbery, shoot-out, and prison escape as though he choreographed them himself.

 John Dillinger: The Life and Death of America's First Celebrity Criminal (Dary Matera)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
His conclusions are half-right at best -- police were already stocking machine guns and body armor (Dillinger robbed them, remember?), banks were already beefing up security, and SWAT teams were not created until decades later.
Matera should have given his manuscript a cleaner line-by-line scrub before sending it in, and there is no excuse for such sloppy editing from a professional publishing house.
If Matera can prove Doc Moran's body was pulled off a Canadian lake shore in 1935 I'll eat my hat.

 Amazon.com: John Dillinger: The Life and Death of America's First Celebrity Criminal: Books   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
In this exciting, enjoyable, but rather curious book, Matera intends to debunk many of the myths surrounding Dillinger, but he seems just as determined to romanticize him while demonizing some of his pursuers.
One of Matera's premises is, actually, wrong; Dillinger was certainly not our first celebrity criminal (does the name Jesse James ring a bell?).
Still, as Matera recounts Dillinger's slow but steady progress from inept punk to daring bank robber, his narrative easily draws in the reader.

 Book 'Em Archives: Crime Magazine's Review of True-Crime Books 2004 by Anneli Rufus
Ramsey's devotion to the case is all the more astounding, as he is based in Britain.
FBI's Ten Most Wanted, by Dary Matera (Harper Torch, 2003): A book such as this one — telling "the chilling stories behind the FBI's historic list of notorious criminals," as its cover-blurb promises — is bound to be rendered out-of-date sooner or later.
Matera's discussions of rewards offered, and his inclusion of passages in the victims' own words, are to be commended, though these are faint glimmers amid otherwise none-too-skilful prose.
