Author Rose Keefe with Antoinette Giancana.
Rose Keefe has a gift of writing gangster related books like no other. She burst on to the scene after meeting up with Bill Helmer, who coaxed her to go ahead with her god given talent as a crime researcher/ historian and author.
Her first published book,( a project that began in 1987) on Chicago's Northside gang leader Dean O'Banion was a big success. It left many gangster buffs in awe of the little known Dean O'Banion who was Chicago's top crime boss, way before Capone. There Keefe gave the true crime readers what they wanted.
Now not resting on any of her laurels, Keefe came back with a knock out punch bigger than the first. Her second book, The Man who got away; The George "Bugs" Moran story focuses on Capone's real rival (no, not the often thought of Eliot Ness), but the real thorn in Al Capone's side and the major threat to his mob empire.
Keefe digs and comes up with info that leaves historians awestruck. Her sources, close and authentic, dispells any naysayers as she one ups the once accepted written facts on the supposed irish mob man who was George Bugs Moran (Or was he)? Besides her two books, Rose has written articles for local periodicals and publications. She is credited in many gangster books.She has appeared on the History ChanneI and done several radio interviews on her authored subjects and for her expertise in this domain. Her documentary appearances show her professionalism when it comes to her subjects. The consummate storyteller, she is so cool under the camera lights, regaling the viewer with little known facts about the featured gangsterand his era.
Keefe has switched over to the New York side of things with her new book on Jack Zelig. (see below).
By far the Chicago Northside mob expert, Rose Keefe resides in Ontario,Canada and is currently working on her next book on one of many past era New York gangsters.
