    Good Book

    I read this book two years ago. This book flushes out what was true and what is just myths about the mobster George 'Bugs' Moran. Find out why Moran's men were supposedly waiting to meet with him on that fateful St. Valentine's Day. Moran did not have the brains to maintain his mob in the very long run, but had the street-smarts to stay one step ahead of a violent death. If you want to know more about this mobster you will have to read this book.

    Truly Amazing!

    If you enjoyed Keefe's 'Guns and Roses' you will LOVE this book. An amazing tale of Chicago's dark side, full of personal stories and detailed facts. Through her in-person interviews, Keefe gives our favorite gangsters personalities and feelings rarely seen. This book puts to rest many of Gangland's greatest mysteries and settles many rumors. Grab a thick notebook, because you're going to want to take notes while reading this one. It's destined to be one of gangland's all time favorite mob-cyclopedias!
