My book "Alive If Possible, Dead If Necessary" includes detailed information on the Kimes gang, as does "The Kimes Gang" by author Mike Koch. The two brothers, Matt and George, and their "gang" robbed banks during 1926 and 1927. The bank robberies most likely were not always committed by the same people. One of the names frequently associated with the Kimes brothers was Ray Terrill. However, Terrill claimed that he was a night-time bank robber (burglar) while the Kimes boys were daylight bank robbers. Terrill denied being a member of their gang.

Hi,

Along with the two books mentioned, "Mean Men" by Robert Winter and "Black Gold & Red Lights" by Jerry Sinise have information on the Kimes Gang.
