Chicago, 1924. There was nothing surprising about men turning up dead in the Second City. Life was cheaper than a quart of illicit gin in the gangland capital of the world. In the tradition of Erik Larson's THE DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY and Karen Abbott's SIN IN THE SECOND CITY, Douglas Perry vividly captures Jazz Age Chicago and the sensationalized circus atmosphere that gave rise to the concept of the celebrity criminal.
