Jonathan Eig's Get Capone.

In this interesting podcast from the Society of Midland Authors, Jonathan Eig, author of Get Capone: The Secret Plot that Captured America's Most Wanted Gangster, discusses his belief that Al Capone was not behind the St. Valentine's Day Massacre (positing an alternate culprit based on an FBI document), the central role of US attorney George Johnson rather than Eliot Ness in convicting Capone of tax evasion, and other facets of his book.
