Rogues' Gallery is a sweeping, epic tale of two re A thief or murderer not caught in the act nearly always got away. But in the early 1870s, an Irish cop named Thomas Byrnes developed new ways to catch criminals. Yet as policing became ever more specialised and efficient, crime itself began to change. Robberies became bolder and more elaborate, murders grew more ruthless and macabre, and the street gangs of old transformed into hierarchal criminal enterprises, giving birth to organised crime, including the Mafia.
