The Whyos Gang spilled more blood and spread more terror in the big cities than any western outlaw could imagine.

The Henessey murder captured the national headlines and made the term "Mafia" a household word.

During the 'Roaring Twenties' the United States experienced one of its worst crime periods. It was a time of rampant violence spawned by the Volstead Act, more commonly known as "Prohibition."

The Face of Death chronicles the history of crime in the United States, from the roots of the Mafia and big city gangs to Bonnie and Clyde.
