Editorial Reviews

Review

"Karlen offers a loving, page turning...colorful and impressively researched account of the Midwest underworld and his fascinating great-uncle that feels right out of Damon Runyon. He serves up innumerable subplots about the Minneapolis Mob's crucial role in the nation's bootlegging, bookmaking and other illicit activities....entertaining and nostalgic, it's a lost world revived by Karlen in all is eccentric swagger and hard-boiled madcap edginess."-The Minneapolis Star Tribune,
