About the Book

From the 1950s to the 1970s, from Bar Harbor to Boca Raton, the ragtag crew known as the K&A Gang robbed wealthy suburban neighborhoods with assembly-line skills. Hornblum tells the strange-but-true story through interviews, police records, and historical research, including the transformation of the K&A Gang from a group of blue-collar thieves to their work in conjunction with numerous organized-crime families and their helping to make Philadelphia the “meth” capital of the nation.
