John Hailman signs "From Midnight to Guntown"

"As a federal prosecutor in
Mississippi for over thirty years, John Hailman worked with federal
agents, lawyers, judges, and criminals of every stripe. In From Midnight
to Guntown, he recounts amazing trials and bad guy antics from the
darkly humorous to the needlessly tragic. In addition to bank
robbers--generally the dumbest criminals--Hailman describes scam
artists, hit men, protected witnesses, colorful informants, corrupt
officials, bad guys with funny nicknames, over-the-top investigators,
and those defendants who had a certain roguish charm. Several of his
defendants and victims have since had whole books written about them:
Dickie Scruggs, Emmett Till, Chicago gang leader Jeff Fort, and Paddy
Mitchell, leader of the most successful bank robbery gang of the
twentieth century. But Hailman delivers the inside story no one else
can. He also recounts his scary experiences after 9/11 when he
prosecuted terrorism cases"--
