This book should have been called true crimes of Chicago. As a lifelong resident of northwestern Illinois I get very tired of the entire state being equated with that one city. Except for the first couple of chapters on early river bandits and outlaws this book was dedicated to Chicago crimes.

I really enjoyed this book. I did not want to put it down. It was very interesting and informative. I would recommend this book to anyone that is interested in Illinois history or is interested in unsolved crimes.
