"A BOOK THIS GOOD SHOULD BE ILLEGAL "As a former career criminal turned Hollywood screenwriter, let me tell ya - strap yourself in and take a ride on Jimmy Maxwell's no holds-barred, gloves off, roller coaster ride of crime!!! This isn't some spray over Maaco paint job that only scratches the surface of what it takes to be the chief lion in the den of thieves -- you'll be shown up close and brutishly personal what it took to be the boss.
When he hits someone in this book, your jaw will feel it.
Jimmy takes you deep into the ruthless mentality of a convict on the run with an audacious pride for the moral street code of only inflicting harm upon those violating the unspoken laws of the jungle. And Maxwell knows who's good, and who's not, with surgical-like precision. He doesn't vilify what he was, but what he became, in visceral storytelling that keeps your eyes whipping through the pages to a climatic end. And like coming off a three-day binge, you'll only want more.
"American Outlaw" bristles with violent passion, howitzer wit, and a virtuoso style tell-all of what pride can do to us. The author mixes the Outlaw's horrors with a deep vein of mordant humor and reflective rage. Violence isn't glorified, but Jimmy didn't run from it -- When someone trespassed in his lair, they'd better be able to rumble.
You'll be shown the Price of his Pride with dynamite suspense, loaded with thrills and wicked fun that few autobiographies can beat. And for those not in the crime life, this is as close as you can get without having to pick up a gun. Buy this book. It may save your life one day if you run into Jimmy Maxwell in a dark alleyway."
- Brandon M. Wyse - Screenwriters Guild, Los Angeles, CA.
"American Outlaw is a raw and unapologetic journey into the world of one of Oklahoma's most notorious prison inmates. In sincere and colorful language, Jimmy Maxwell conveys the complex, bewildering - and sometimes terrifying - truth of time spent running from the Law."

This book takes you from one lockup to another in a manner that will not leave you disappointed. You follow “Jimmy” from the beginning of the interview to the end as he tells the story of an ex-con coming full circle back to the prison he came from and the journey he survived along the way.
He’ll explain his thinking or the lack of therewith, sometime causing his own demise with no help from anybody.
This publication “is” very well written with a good sometimes comical tale to match.
