From the slums of Brooklyn to the luxurious hotels and nightclubs of Chicago, legendary mobster Al Capone took a meteoric rise to the highest levels of the criminal underworld at only twenty-five years of age. He became one of the wealthiest men in the world, with scores of speakeasies, brothels and gambling houses under his control and hundreds of gunmen ready to do his bidding. But in spite of his vast power, Capone was a man who lived in fear - haunted by a vengeful spirit from St. Valentine's Day 1929! Journey back to Roaring 20s Chicago with author Troy Taylor and discover the world of Al Capone and the gangs that made the city streets run red with blood! In this first, full-length book to unravel the haunting of Al Capone and other gangland ghosts of Chicago, you'll find a time of jazz, bootleg liquor and rattling tommy guns as Taylor brings to life the mob violence and brutal revenge from the Prohibition era. Enter the world of Big Jim Colosimo, John Torrio, the "Terrible" Gennas, Dion O'Banion and of course, Al Capone and come along for the rise and fall of Capone and the various gangs of Chicago, the Beer Wars, the police and political corruption, the deadly shootings, the "one-way rides", the mob assassinations and the other terrifying events that left lingering spirits in their wake! This is a must-have addition to the "Dead Men Do Tell Tales" Series and a book that will have you turning the pages to see what happens next! You may think you know the stories of Chicago in the gangster era, but those were only the beginning!
