“CAPELLI, Ace” : THE FIX.
London : Kaye Publications, [ca.1950]. First edition. “Heading San Francisco’s racket bosses was Jamie Riggs – Jamie and Pal Joey, the kid he had trained to think his way, and the guy he trusted with his shirt. These were the two closest pals in the game – until the night of the big fight when it didn't suit Jamie any longer”.
“CAPELLI, Ace” : DON’T DIE TOO SOON.
London : Ralph Stokes for Gaywood Press, [ca.1952]. First edition. “Both wore black overcoats, and black fedoras with snap brims. They looked like two black crows. On the table were two battered briefcases. Rio’s case held the barrel and the magazine, while Frank’s held the butt end of a Thompson sub-machine-gun” – campaigning newspaperman brutally shot down.
