"Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions or comments concerning Deadly Valentines"

Deadly Valentines is a narrative non-fiction account of Jack McGurn, Capone's best killer, and Louise Rolfe, McGurn's "Blonde Alibi" for the morning of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre

Jeffrey Gusfield has been researching Vincent Gebardi and Louise Rolfe for over forty years. Jeff is a "gangsterologist," a new term for historians specializing in the American Prohibition and Depression Era gangsters and outlaws. This term was coined by the late, great crime expert, Rick Mattix

"Many writers feel a kinship to another time; I have always especially understood the 1920's, and particularly the Capone era. I'm a Chicagoan and I did most of my early research when many witnesses and family members were still alive. This book is a project born of passion and a lifetime of burning curiosity about Al Capone, Jack McGurn, Louise Rolfe, and those miscreants and wonderful characters who made the twenties roar in Chicago - The story of Jack and Louise is perhaps the most fascinating gangster tale of the entire epic."
