Rogues' Gallery is a sweeping, epic tale of two revolutions, one feeding off the other, which played out on the streets of New York City during an era known as the Gilded Age. For centuries, New York had been a haven of crime. But in the early 1870s, an Irish cop by the name of Thomas Byrnes developed new ways to catch criminals. Robberies became bolder and more elaborate, murders grew more ruthless and macabre, and the street gangs of old transformed into hierarchal criminal enterprises. This is a tale of unforgettable characters across decades of organised crime in New York.
