Product description

Review

"What makes the book so compelling is how human a story this is. Yates relied on the recollections of many of the great writers and competitors of the time. All told, this is a remarkable chronicle of a time and sport, lively and historically rich, that brings needed color to the era."

"Umbrella Mike, aka Michael Joseph Boyle ... is spiritedly limned in this Depression-era chronicle of a gangster's progress and the establishment of the Indianapolis 500 as the nation's preeminent auto race.... Until now. Boyle has been overlooked by students of the Chicago Outfit, and Yates does much to make amends. Needless to say, this is also a great book for auto-racing enthusiasts."

Book Description

From the author of Against Death and Time comes the true story of a heroic race car driver who managed to thwart an evil Chicago mobster during the difficult years of the Depression
