About the Book

Now available in paperback: The story of Pennsylvania’s Johnston Gang, led by Bruce Johnston Sr. and his brothers, Norman and David, netted millions through a prolific burglary ring during the 1960s and ’70s. But in 1978, fearing that younger members of the gang were going to rat them out to the authorities, the brothers killed four teenagers and nearly killed Bruce Sr.’s own son. This book draws on personal interviews with investigators, attorneys, and even former gang members to detail how the combined efforts of federal, state, county, and local law-enforcement agencies brought the brothers to justice.
