Edwin Alonzo Boyd
Author: Brian Vallee
The Story of the Notorious Boyd Gang
The son of a Toronto policeman and First World War veteran, Edwin Alonzo Boyd seemed an unlikely candidate for the role of master criminal. But before his career as a bandit was ended in 1952, the glamorously handsome Boyd cut a swath through 11 Toronto-area banks, stealing thousands and igniting two manhunts of unprecedented scope. When he and his confederates escaped not once but twice from Toronto's Don Jail, the Boyd Gang created headlines across North America and became an enduring Canadian legend.
Edwin Alonzo Boyd: The Story of the Notorious Boyd Gang gives the first complete account of the life and times of this infamous criminal.
