O’Reilly’s successful book series scores another spot on bestsellers list

Though he no longer has the cable television reach he once boasted, former Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly’s books can still top the charts.

His latest entry in a popular series of historical books focuses on the American mafia and has already become a bestseller.

“Prohibition-busting bank robbers of the Depression Era”

According to Washington Examiner, his latest book, Killing the Mob: The Fight Against Organized Crime in America, was recently published by St. Martin’s Press.

The publisher has since proclaimed that the release has topped the bestsellers list by The New York Times, the Wall Street JournalPublishers Weekly, and USA Today. It is also a hit on Amazon and in the Apple store.

Along with co-author Martin Dugard, O’Reilly takes readers on a journey tracking the mob from the 1930s to the 1980s — from the inception of Prohibition to the government’s war with Jimmy Hoffa and beyond.

A description of the book references “the prohibition-busting bank robbers of the Depression Era, such as John Dillinger, Bonnie & Clyde, Pretty Boy Floyd and Baby-Face Nelson.”

The authors also reportedly examine the mob’s involvement in Hollywood, Cuba, and Las Vegas, as well as controversial FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

“You’re going to know about organized crime”

In a statement to the Washington Examiner, O’Reilly explained: “I’m very proud of all the ‘Killing’ books. This one, if you read this one, you’re going to know about organized crime. I did my job.”

While promoting his latest release, he offered a glimpse into what he learned about the mob’s alleged connections in major U.S. cities and industries.

“Running big industrial city unions — New York, Philly, LA, Chicago — brought money and power,” he said. “They then invested that in the rock music industry. Paying some DJs meant not selling your songs or even working nightclubs if you didn’t deal with the mob.”

The book is sure to provide a windfall for the author, whose profile has diminished considerably since leaving Fox News. Nevertheless, it is clear he commands a devoted audience hungry for more of his popular books.

He now boasts 16 bestsellers in a series that has sold 18 million copies around the world and spent a combined 320 weeks on the Times bestsellers list.
