    The book that put the Tommy Gun on the map as far as I m concerned And one incident that seems to go hand in hand with the infamous gun was the St Valentine s Day Massacre and Bill highlights the Fred Killer Burke hideout and seizure of 2 Tommy Guns now located at the Berrien County Sheriff s Department While other sources couldn t quite seem to get the facts straight often with incorrect spellings, Bill obviously did his homework and did a fantastic job with his research Accuracy is a key and this man follows up and gets the information right from the source That is why his books should be filed in the reference section of the library
