Still on Alcatraz, where his dad his a prison guard, Moose discovers that his request for help from prisoner Al Capone has unforeseen consequences.

Second in a series of historical fiction, I found this one to be a bit more implausible than the first. However, I still like the setting, the characters and the idea of what might have happened... Very creative and appealing. Also continues the autism story-line of Moose's sister - even though it is never named as such because it had not yet been identified in that era.
