Publisher: St. Martin's Press

Tom Clavin is a bestselling author who has worked as a website and newspaper editor, magazine writer, TV and Radio commentator, and a reporter for the New York Times.

On October 5, 1892, one of the greatest outlaw gangs, Dalton Gang, attempted their boldest and bloodiest raid yet which was robbing two banks during the daylight in Coffeyville, Kansas. This gang consisted of three brothers and their rotating cast of colorful accomplices who saw themselves as descended from the legendary James brothers. The Last Outlaws presents the full story of Dalton Gang’s life of crime culminating in one of the Wild West’s most violent events.
