This a superb book full of info i was not aware of.For example.... "Peter Gusenberg one of the northsiders top enforcers had a dental apointment on 14 february, but cancelled it to be at 21/22 north clark street. insignificant? no.
If he had kept the appointment he would not have been present when they were all slaughtered.
A great read. I read half the book in one day.
The prohibition chicago gangster era is by far the most facinating era in criminal history, and this book dipicts that era superbly..
