I think that from Anna's point of view the deal to assist in the assassination of Dillinger was a smart choice for the reward money and to avoid deportation-not honorable but Dillinger was not honorable either. According to the book she only got around $5000.00 and was supposed to share that with Polly who disappeared and went home. Anna made the mistake of leaving the "protection" of the justice department and returned to Chicago thereby angering Hoover who saw no need to stop her deportation proceedings-the Labor Dept. had her deported 1936-the photo of Anna at the back of the book kissing Zarkovich as she is deported to Romania illustrates "no honor among thieves" Anna the "Woman in Red" and Zarkovich the "police shiek" (p. 335). One could also argue that Anna's survival skills and lack of opportunities for women in the 1930's also influenced her actions to betray Dillinger. smile.gif Anne r

Well put Anne r! I think she was desperate and took a chance when she could. It's a shame that she ended up being deported though. Rewards for wanted criminals are offered all of the time, and he was a BIG criminal. To a lot of people, she did the world a favor. Then why does it seem so sneaky?

I agree totally with your comments nurseanne. She did what she had to do to save her own skin and really thought they would uphold their end of the bargain given the fact that he was public enemy #1.
I hadn't thought about it being sneaky before but I guess it might seem that way because he was betrayed by 'one of his own' in such a cold and calculated way.

What was always interesting to me too was the fact that Anna could have made the call that night and told them that JD was in the apartment with her and they could have 'stormed' the building or whatever. Not as dramatic maybe but still effective and maybe safer to avoid any innocent people being killed, again.
