The true story of the legend who inspired the character of Guy Masterson in Guys and Dolls, this biography follows Alvin ‘Titanic’ Thompson as he marries his way through five different women and murders five different men. A legendary tale of a man who travelled with just his golf clubs, a revolver and a suitcase full of cash, the story is a fascinating peek at 20th century America.
