Jack Gail & Paul Gallender (we'll be using Jack's photo only)
Biografía del autor
I will provide copy for the back cover, along with Jack's photo, after the first round. Jack Gail was one of the most respected guys in Chicago. So respected that he was chosen by the Chicago Outfit to run their casino operations in Spain. Then he did an old friend a favor, and that favor ended up ruining his life. The Feds look down on wiseguys who inform on other people, but they absolutely despise the ones that don't. Jack never betrayed anyone, but the Feds decided to do whatever they could to turn him into a rat. That's what made their behavior both criminal and strictly personal.
This is my second book. The first was Sonny Liston - The Real Story Behind the Ali-Liston Fights.

Here's the concept I have in mind: If you've ever watched a movie about the mob, or police work in general, you probably saw at one point a board with pictures and names of the hierarchy of organized crime. They usually had pins to hold the photos in place, along with lines leading from one "connected" person to another. Our cover will feature the words, Organized Federal Crime at the top of this particular board. There would be 9 such "photos" on our cover, with their affiliation and names being above and below each photo. It starts with the FBI, then goes down to two Asst. U.S. Attorneys. To the left are two photos of ATF Special Agents, one on top of the other. To the right are two photos of Asst. Lake County State Attorneys, one on top of the other. The eighth photo is in the middle of the board with connections to both ATF agents and both Lake County State Attorneys. The ninth and last photo will be underneath the guy in the middle. One of the design issues is that we're not going to use the actual photos of the people we name. So, my question to you is what do we put inside the so-called photos, and where do we put the names and affiliations of the people in those photos? Also, where to put the subtitle which will read something like, Why Federal Law Enforcement Conspired to Frame an Innocent Man and How They Got Away With It. I'm open to shortening the subtitle if it'll make the Crime Board larger. Properly done, people will be drawn in by the cover. I've provided a sketch of my idea but please ignore and omit the Dennis Berkson photo. The book is approximately 200 pages, or 60,000 words, so the book size will either be 6x9 or 5.5x8.5. That
something you'll tell me once you have a viable design.
